Before you’re all packed and ready to go, take a moment to read some of our FAQs so you can settle right in once you’re here—and make sure Mom’s cookies will find their way to you!


Are Gender Inclusive housing options available?

Yes! We do offer Gender Inclusive housing options on campus. Click here to learn more!

When will I find out where I am living and who my roommates are?

We will wait until after Orientation to assign rooms so that students may contact us about a roommate preference. You will receive an email at your nichols.edu account no later than the second week of August detailing your building & room number, your roommates and their home addresses, as well as valuable move-in information.

Can I pick my roommates?

You may pick the person or people you would like to live with. Every effort will be made to house roommate requests together. You will notify us of your roommate choices by completing the online roommate match information that will be given out at Orientation.

When I get there, what will I find in my room?

A single bed, mattress–extra long (36”x80”), closet/wardrobe, desk, chair, shades/blinds, and shower curtain.

What about my mailing address?

There is a Post Office on campus with boxes for each student. You will receive your Unit Number during New Student Check In. The format you should use for your mailing address is:

Unit #
Nichols College
P.O. Box 5000
Dudley, MA 01571-5000

Remember, you won’t get cookies, brownies, care packages or money if you do not give anyone your accurate address!

Will we have laundry facilities?

All residence halls (with the exception of South Hall) are equipped with washing machines and dryers. There is no cost associated with these machines. Be sure to bring your own laundry supplies, detergent, fabric softener, etc.

When and how will I receive Move-In Information?

You will receive Move-In Information via your nichols.edu email account in August. You will be provided with a specific move in time, and instructions. In addition, on Move-In Day we have the “Movers and Shakers” to assist you. The “Movers and Shakers” are comprised of student, faculty, and staff volunteers.
