The Knox Shop
Berries on a campus tree.

More than 95% of Knox students live on campus and the rest live in nearby houses and apartments. Because of that, 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 on your student portal. Once we learn your preferences, we'll send your assignment and ask you to approve a housing agreement, which you will also find on your student portal. Want to know how much room you'll have in your new living space? Get the lowdown on room, mattress, closet, and window dimensions and where to do your laundry in each residence hall.

Choose a meal plan. Knox meal plans are designed with an emphasis on flexibility. Choose a meal plan on your student portal that best meets your individual needs and tastes.

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 on your student portal and we'll pass your name to organization leaders so they can let you know how to jump-start your involvement at Knox.

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).

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).
