Student Life

Find your people. Gathered around a seminar table, on the field, in the City, engaged in debate, playing music, or working to make a difference, Sarah Lawrence students live a life that’s kinetic, engaged, and high energy.

Housing & Dining 

Housing & Dining

More than 85 percent of Sarah Lawrence students live on campus—and our residence halls are just as varied as our students. From traditional-style dorms to cooperative houses, from rooms tucked away in stately mansions to a sustainable lifestyle house, every space encourages community gatherings and provides spaces for both living and learning.

Student Involvement 

Student Involvement

Join a club—or start your own. Go to a concert—or perform yourself. Theatre shows, poetry slams, science fairs, open mic nights, late-night dances, early-morning workouts, community service, internships, volunteer opportunities, competitive sports...the campus is alive with student activities.

Diversity & Campus Engagement 

Diversity & Campus Engagement

The Office of Diversity and Campus Engagement works with its programming and funding arm—the Diversity and Activism Programming Subcommittee of Student Life (DAPS)—to provide student-centered programs that focus on all aspects of diversity. The office sponsors a weekly dialogue group called Real Talk @ SLC, provides mediation support, and advises student managers of identity groups and spaces on campus.
