Residence halls have the potential for making significant contributions to the learning and development of community college students. Understanding students’ perceptions of both staff and peer contributions to the academic climate in their residence halls is critical. The results of this study indicate that residence life staff are perceived to be higher contributors to the academic climate in living environments than residential peers. The findings from this nationwide study provide benchmark data for community colleges with residence halls. Suggestions are made for how community colleges can reexamine the educational potential of residence halls.
