Welcome to Buckley

The Buckley residential area provides a unique living experience. Buckley Hall is near the School of Fine Arts and right next door to the newly built Mansfield Downtown establishment. It has a well-equipped gameroom and provides music practice rooms to any on-campus resident. All incoming freshmen Honors students are assigned to Buckley and Shippee Hall. Buckley has a dining hall which allows residents of both Buckley and neighboring Shippee to walk to an eating facility nearby. Bathrooms are communal and shared on each floor.

Buckley is a first year area on-campus.  These areas are designed to help students adjust to college life and transition to community style living.  Students will be assigned to these areas with other first year students as roommates. Buckley and Shippee create one community. The two communities participate in the Honors Olympics in September and the Block Party in April. The majority of residents in this area are in the Honors program and there are a large number of events that take place both in Buckley and Shippee; many of them are honors events. Most residents are happy to be in this community and enjoy the camaraderie between the buildings and the relationships that are built.
