Thomas More College is, at heart, a residential college. Almost all our students live with us for all
four years, including a semester in Rome. Since the reading and writing load is substantial,
dormitory life is ordered to provide the peace and security necessary for study. The Rules and
Regulations governing conduct are outlined in the Student Handbook. Resident proctors, resident
assistants, and staff members maintain these and other rules which guarantee privacy and reflect a
Christian respect for human dignity.

Those local residents who do commute are encouraged to have meals on campus and to join in
campus activities. Faculty often take meals with the students. Details of campus regulations are
found in the student life handbook. Students congregate in the cafeteria, the chapel, the Marian
shrine in our woods, and in the Junior Common Room—the student lounge—where the television
is only used on weekends, often to show classic movies or Shakespeare plays. Extracurricular
activities include impromptu one-act plays and musical performances, hiking trips to the White
Mountains, and—a new addition in 2009—classes in iconography and fine woodworking.

Many Thomas More College students are eligible for the Work-Study program, by which they
defray the cost of their tuition by helping to keep our historic campus neat and tidy. Work
assignments range from the sacristan’s position in the chapel to the admission’s assistants in the
Blanchard House, with plenty of cooking, cleaning, and gardening chores to go around.

Conveniently located across the street from campus is the Merrimack YMCA – and it is free to
students of Thomas More College. The Y offers an Olympic-sized pool; a track and fitness center;
courts for tennis, basketball, and racquetball; and Karate and yoga classes. Students regularly
travel off campus to the region’s many attractions. The neighboring town of Nashua hosts both
theatre and opera companies, a ballet troupe, and concerts performed by both the Nashua
Symphony and the Nashua Chamber Orchestra. The largest big city, Manchester, has a minor
league baseball team, frequent classical and pop concerts at major arenas, Irish folk music bars,
and a wide array of ethnic restaurants, architectural gems, and historic churches. Thomas More
students receive special discounts at most events. Other regional attractions include the city of
Boston—just one hour away by car at off-peak travel times—the White Mountain National Forest,
Mount Monadnock, the Lakes Region of central New Hampshire, and the historic New England
towns of Portsmouth, NH and Concord, MA.
