As a residential campus, everything from student activities to housing arrangements have been designed to foster and support the intimacy and diversity you'll find in our community. No matter what your interests, you'll make friends and have a lot of fun. Most of all, you'll feel like you belong.

Let us know your housing preferences.
To help us match you with the best roommate possible, complete a questionnaire in your Pre-Arrival Tracker. The form asks a number of questions and your answers will assist us in making the best roommate match possible for you as well as helping us create diverse suite environments for everyone. 

Get involved on campus and in the community.
There's always something going on at Knox, and it's the students who make it happen! Knox has more than 100 student organizations. Want to get involved? Take an interest survey in your Pre-Arrival Tracker and we'll pass your name to organization leaders, so they can let you know how to jump-start your involvement at Knox.

Choose your dining plan.
With five student board plans and two commuter plans, Knox offers a variety of dining options to meet your needs, whether you prefer to eat in the dining hall, snack bar, or on the run. Sign up for a plan in your Pre-Arrival Tracker.

Send us a photo for your Knox ID.
When you arrive on campus, you will receive a Knox ID that you need for meals, to check out library materials, and more. So that it can be ready when you arrive, we need a photo of you. Here are the photo guidelines.

Find Room and Suite Measurements
Our student residence halls offer a dynamic living and learning environment. Find room and suite measurements for each of our first-year residence halls.

Contribute to our culture of sustainability.
The Knox community is committed to creating and nurturing a culture of sustainability. When you arrive on campus, stop by the student-run Share Shop for school supplies, clothing for all seasons, and housewares. And take a few minutes to learn more about other sustainability programs and initiatives, events, and resources (including the Knox Farm, Bike Shop, and Bike Share).

Say "Cheese!"
Knox's photographers and videographers work throughout the year to capture and share the Knox experience with the College's many constituents. Our photos, audio, or video recordings may be used on the Knox College website and other digital communications, in print publications, and for publicity purposes. But you can choose to opt out of photo and video coverage. Read more about our media policy (PDF).
