Residency + Meal Plans

Carleton Residency

Students in the BIT programs will be offered residence space at Carleton if they are eligible for a residence offer.

Your meal plan will be effective on Carleton's campus only, so choose one that takes into account the number of meals for that you will be off-campus.
