Mansfield Hall is a residential living and learning community for students who are attending college.
Because we value continuity in our community we ask students to commit to a full academic year and request that all new students attend the Bridge to College Summer Orientation Program.
Burlington and Madison schools operate on a semester system. The academic year for an incoming student is Summer Bridge (generally starting in mid-July) + Fall & Spring Term + Core Term.
Most schools in Eugene operate on a quarter system. An academic year for an incoming student in Eugene is Summer Bridge (starting in mid-August) + Fall, Winter, & Spring Term + Core Term.
*Please Note: As our students attend various local colleges and universities their specific start and end dates may vary year to year, but we do ask all incoming students to join us for the Bridge To College Summer Orientation Program. Additionally, Mansfield Hall closes for at least two weeks over the Winter Break.
The comprehensive residential program includes the following:
- Apartments and Meals
Students live in a high quality furnished apartment within Mansfield Hall. Students are well-supported in our residential community, and most students have a roommate. Dinners are provided all nights, with continental lunch and breakfast available daily.
- 24/7 Support
Students have access to support and assistance 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. The Hall is staffed by numerous members of our team throughout the day (generally from 7 am – 11 pm) and support is provided overnight by an on-call phone.
- Comprehensive Services
Students have full access to our in-house comprehensive services, including support for academics, executive functioning and study skills, pro-social development, and independent living skills.
- Activities and Events
Students are actively encouraged to participate in a wide range of Mansfield Hall-sponsored activities, including both community and in-house events. This robust offering of social activities and opportunities includes weekday, evening, and weekend events.
Students are expected to commute to their local colleges, either on foot, bike, or independently using public transportation. Transportation services are provided on an as-needed basis for recreational activities, group outings, and local errands.
2021/22 Tuition for students in the comprehensive residential program is:
- $2,500 – A non-refundable $2500 Enrollment Fee secures a student’s space, upon acceptance.

- University/College Tuition and Fees
Students are responsible for paying tuition and fees associated with colleges and universities they are attending. Our team will assist families in enrolling in the appropriate programs, but it is the responsibility of the families to maintain regular payments to the college.
- Ancillary Services
Mansfield Hall will help connect students requiring additional services not included in the program costs, such as psychological, speech and language, physical therapy, etc. with our network of affiliated professionals. Some of these services are billable by insurance.
- Spending Money
Students are required to have access to a checking/savings account to access spending money, as needed. This money may be needed for supplies, groceries, snacks, recreational activities, etc.
- College Meal Card Plans
Although it is not required, students may be interested in signing up for a limited meal card plan at their local college.
In addition to our comprehensive residential community we provide community-based non-residential transitional support via Connections for students who demonstrate the capability for increased independence only after they complete their residency with us.
The 2021/22 cost of Connections is:
- $14,200 per term (Madison and Burlington) / $9,500 per term (Eugene) for the first two years.
- $8,900 per term (Madison and Burlington) / $5,900 per term (Eugene) for any subsequent years.
All Mansfield Hall students begin in residence, and students generally stay with us residentially for 1 or 2 years before transitioning to their next step.
