Off-Campus College Properties

Cottage Lane Duplexes, Gray House, London House, Red House, White House and Yellow House

Off-Campus College Owned/Leased Housing allows for students to have more independence and is a great stepping stone to living outside of the college setting. Students are selected to reside in off-campus college owned/lease properties based on perceived maturity, decision making skills and independence. Students understand the expectations and responsibilities in living in these off-campus college owned properties and agree to behave with independence, maturity and respect for themselves and the greater community.


The standards published in the Code of Community Responsibility outline the conduct expected of community members on campus or in college owned or leased property and when engaged in activities that represent Colby-Sawyer College whether on or off campus.
