Community Development Coordinator
Quad Office: Charles River Commons
Welcome to Charles River Apartments
Charles River offers an apartment-style living environment located in an off campus setting while still providing residents an on campus community lifestyle. The Charles River Apartments are home to juniors, seniors and graduate students who enjoy the privacy of the apartment style living as well as its on-campus feel.
There are four buildings in the Charles River Quad, each commonly referred to by students by their address number. These buildings include:
- Morton May, 110 Angleside Road
- Max and Ann Coffman, 150 Charles River Road
- Ollie A. Cohen, 164 Charles River Road
- George E. Lewis, 178 Charles River Road
All apartments will be renovated during the summer of 2010. Renovations included remodeled kitchens, new appliances, new bathrooms, new floors, new furniture, lighting, and repainted walls.
Charles River is staffed by five Community Advisors (CAs) who provide support, connection and resources to students within the Charles River community.
The Community Development Coordinator (CDC), a live-in full time professional staff member with an advanced degree, supervises the CAs and manages the residence halls.
The Community Development Coordinator holds regular office hours in the quad office.
