Welcome

PurpleHello and welcome to The Castle!

Risley Residential College for the Creative and Performing Arts is a North Campus Program House for all undergraduates, with a focus on all arts. While all Risley-ites have an appreciation the practice, residents and Out-Of-House members can be from any major.

What makes Risley unique is how our community is led by resident initiatives. We have a myriad of student volunteers leading our three hall councils, seven annual major programs, Risley Orientation Committee, and weekly social programs.

Facilities include an 81-seat black box theater, 12 fine arts work shops, library, dance studio, coffee lounge, and of course the famous Risley Dining Hall.

Even beyond the undergraduate experience, Risley members remain connected to our community as alumni for decades.
