Welcome to the residency information website! We are getting ready now for our January residencies.  Soon those of you in Cultural Sustainability, Environmental Studies, Digital Arts, Management and Creative Nonfiction will be packing your bags and heading to campus to work with your fellow classmates and faculty. Residency is packed with challenging classes, exciting events, fieldtrips and guest speakers. So, whether you are a new or returning student, we are looking forward to having you with us.

Although residency is a collaborative experience, each program has its own unique nuances. As we firm up the details you will soon find links to your specific schedules with further information about course times and locations, group meetings, program outings, dinners and special events so stay tuned! For those of you that are new to Goucher, residency will allow you to take full advantage of our first rate campus amenities and resources. Just to mention a few:

  • Enjoy fabulous all you can eat Farm to Fork meals from Bon Appetit. Whether you are vegan, vegetarian, gluten free, carnivorous or anything and everything in between, you will find a variety of delicious offerings available.

  • Access the many resources available to you at the Goucher College Library: over 300,000 books, reserves, films, music CDs, scores, as well as special collections and archives. Our library is housed in the Athenaeum, an LEED-NC Gold certified building that serves as the vital point of connection between the academic, cultural, and social pursuits for community members - both on and off campus. In addition to the library you will find an open amphitheater for public events, the Silber Art Gallery, a cardio-fitness loft, and Alice's Restaurant, a gourmet café that serves light fare.

  • Stay on your game both intellectually and physically with our six-lane synthetic outdoor track; 107,000 square foot turf field with lights; three grass practice fields and one stadium field for soccer, field hockey and lacrosse; eight tennis courts; two gymnasiums; six-lane swimming pool; Cardio Fitness Center; Strength and Conditioning Center; aerobics room; one racquetball and one squash court; paths and trails for running, walking, and riding; 10-hole Frisbee golf course.  Learn more about our facilities.
