Returning Student Arrival Dates and Times


To assist our students traveling to Colby from afar shuttles will again be provided to campus from the Portland Jetport and Boston Logan Airport. Students that are unable to secure their own transportation to campus from one of these locations can complete this FORM no later than Monday, August 10th. Responses to his form will be used to create the final shuttle schedule which will be sent to students to register for a specific shuttle time on, or around, August 15th. Upon registration, students are required to pay $10 for their seat on a shuttle.

The ideal residential experience offers onsite resources and built-in community. Each of our 26 residence halls is a microcosm of Colby. Students of various classes are housed together—sharing space and pride of association.

  • Living with students gives first-years constant access to advice, information, and support from those who already know their way around.
  • Being clustered with other first-years within mixed-year housing means new students get to learn with and lean on others who are just getting started.

Colby Room Draw

Symplicity is Colby’s online system for managing room selections during the room draw each spring. Each student receives a room-draw number and a pick-time based on seniority.
