living-learning community.

Apply for 2019-2020

We are...

...a diverse community of motivated individuals.

CoRE is a special interest housing community with a collection of students that share common interests in Computers, Robotics, and Engineering. Together, we create an awesome and diverse student body with majors ranging from Business and Biology to Computer Science and Mechanical Engineering.

...really friendly!

Why live on CoRE? Well, for starters, you get to live with people that are just like you! We all like the same things, share commons interests, and we can guarantee you will be making friends right away. Our residential floor is the most social and tight-knit floor on campus, hands down. Visitors are often shocked to see how social and friendly our floor really is.

CoRE Lore

November 21st

CoRE invites all of its alumni back to campus to eat and tell stories. Students and alumni network over dinner cooked by current CoRE members, and dessert brought by alumni. Current and past members speak about their experiences on CoRE and in industry.

CoRE was founded in 1991, making us the oldest living-learning community in BU

CoRE Hacks

Every year, students in CoRE come up with and create their own technically inspired projects. From reimplementing the original DOOM's® graphics engine, to uploading our own Snapchat® filter, CoRE Hacks is an in-house event that brings our ideas to life!

CoRE was responsible for bringing internet to the Dickinson Community
