Information on the student resident program

Dacie’s House is quite different from any other housing at Carleton. Since the students living there are responsible for keeping the place open and inviting, it is both an abode and a job. The hosting entails preparations for Sunday brunches and hospitality at other times. Potential applicants not familiar with the House are urged to attend Sunday brunches, and in addition talk to those now living there.

Students living at Dacie’s are charged the standard room fee (as if they were in any other off-campus interest house) and are given work contracts in compensation for time worked. They can elect to eat some of their meals on-board.
