A residential college is an organisational pattern for a division of a university that places academic activity in a community setting of students and faculty, usually at a residence and with shared meals, the college having a degree of autonomy and a federated relationship with the overall university.
However, the term residential college is also used to describe a variety of other patterns, ranging from a dormitory with some academic programming, to continuing education programs for adults lasting a few days.
The classical models for the residential college are the colleges of the Oxford University and Cambridge University in the United Kingdom; the University of California, Santa Cruz, Yale University, Rice University, and the California Institute of Technology in the United States.
