Although Carleton is a residential college, a limited number of seniors are allowed to live in private apartments through the Northfield Option process. The total number of Northfield Option spaces is determined by the overall College occupancy and varies each year. 

If you’re offered Northfield Option and accept, you assume full responsibility for your housing arrangements.
