Columbia College offers a wide variety of housing options for students. From the traditional dorm rooms of Hughes Hall to the modern apartments of Cougar Village, dorms offer options for all students. The dorms also offer students several services, such as computer labs, free laundry services, and suite-style bathrooms. Handicapped students are welcomed and encouraged to contact the Residential Life Department for special arrangements.
Everyone living in a dorm is required to buy a meal plan, limiting the students' choice in terms of food. Also, there are no men-only dorms, and only one women-only dorm, limiting those options as well. Two out of three dorms and Cougar Village are coed facilities.
