Residency Requirements

All students will live in Collegium housing with the following exceptions:

  • students living with relatives;

  • students living in a home approved by their parents and by the Collegium.


The Hamilton Hotel, once Hagerstown's largest hotel, serves as Collegium housing. It is located at 92 W.

Housing Arrangements

The Collegium occupies the third and fourth floors of the hotel. 

  • The men live on one wing on each floor; the wing is separated by a secured door. 

  • The women live on another wing of each floor; the wing is also separated by a secured door. 

  • Currently, all faculty also live in the building.

  • There is no inter-wing visitation.  (Students entering the wing designated for students of the opposite sex will be expelled.)



Access to the building and to the student residence wings will be by key card.

A front-desk attendant is on duty 24 hours/day.

Alcohol, Drugs, and Smoking/Vaping

The legal drinking age in Maryland is 21.  Therefore, alcohol is forbidden at all Collegium activities that involve students, on- or off-campus.  Alcohol and drugs are forbidden in the residence hall.   Smoking/vaping is forbidden on all Collegium sites.

Students using forbidden substances (alcohol, drugs, tobacco, vaping materials) will be fined and/or expelled.

Students entering the wing designated for members of the opposite sex will be expelled.
