Single rooms for upper-class students on a waterfront property minutes from campus.

Snow Pond is our newest residence option, thanks to an exciting partnership between Thomas College and Snow Pond Center for the Arts. Students who are at least 21 years old have the option to live on a gorgeous 40-acre property along Messalonskee Lake. The residential space, located 10 minutes from campus, is a two-story building with 28 single bedrooms, shared bathrooms, a common living area, a full kitchen, and laundry facilities. Incredible camp amenities like studio spaces, tennis and basketball courts, docks, and trails for walking and snowshoeing are also available to all residents. Because Snow Pond is off campus, residents must have their own transportation to and from campus.

The entire Thomas College community will be welcome to enjoy certain portions of the premises, including lake access, throughout the lease period when available per Snow Pond’s event schedule.
