Global Communities students live in Dorchester Hall or other GC designated on-campus housing. Dorchester Hall offers single, double, and triple rooms on both single-gender and mixed-gender floors.  Floors have single-use gender-neutral bathrooms and enlarged community bathrooms. Dorchester Hall includes a ground-level seminar room, multipurpose room, a building kitchen, study lounges on each floor, lounges with kitchenettes on each floor, water-filling stations on each floor, a laundry room, and much more.

Global Community students take some of our classes in the Dorchester hall seminar room, hang out in our main lounge, cook meals in our kitchen, and meet on the balcony. Students also have the opportunity to enjoy meals together in the South Campus dining hall.

The University’s flagship library—McKeldin Library—is in our backyard. Dorchester Hall is a stone’s throw from the McKeldin Mall and most academic buildings. We are steps away from the University Health Center and the Adele Stamp Student Union. Global Communities students rarely have to go far to attend class, grab a bite to eat or visit with friends.

Global Communities strives to create a diverse, active, and community-oriented living experience in the residence hall we call home. We invite you to be part of a welcoming and exciting global community.  

Please note: Students in Global Communities are required to live in Dorchester Hall or other GC designated on-campus housing for their first year unless an exemption is approved. Please contact globalcommunities [at] if you have questions or concerns about this requirement. Students may apply to live in Dorchester for their second year if space permits. Housing in Dorchester is not guaranteed for second-year students.
