Residential life at Carleton is the heart of campus life. 90% of our students live in college housing, and they spend more time there than anywhere else on campus.
On campus, enjoy full meals in our two dining halls, or grab a quick bite at the Sayles-Hill snack bar & grill. Off-campus, explore a full menu of restaurant options in Northfield and the Twin Cities.
Interested in competitive sports? Carleton offers 19 varsity athletic teams competing in the Minnesota Intercollegiate Athletic Conference (MIAC), one of NCAA Division III’s best conferences.
Rec Sports & Fitness
Make fitness fun with Carleton's 50 student-organized Club Sports and an Intramural Sports league open to all...or work up a sweat with the training facilities and classes at the gyms and Rec Center.

You'll find every student organization you could imagine—and probably a few you never dreamed of—at Carleton, and plenty of media outlets for them all.
Carleton students collectively log around 4,000 hours of volunteer work each term, to the great benefit of the campus and surrounding community.
With a wind turbine, a green roof, locally-grown food and even compostable utensils, we're doing all we can to keep our campus green.
Carleton's student body is represented by virtually every religion in the world, and 75% of our students say that the primary goal in their education is to “develop a meaningful philosophy of life.”
