Sober Living Colleges


Sober living colleges are intended for students addicted to drugs or alcohol. These colleges allow addicted students to go through rehab while finishing their college degree. Such colleges strictly ban drugs and alcohol on the premises so that students do not face temptation. Though some colleges are designated as solely for “sober living” students, many mainstream colleges have sober living facilities and maintain “dry” status to keep drugs and alcohol away from all students.

University of Wisconsin

  • The University of Wisconsin is a mainstream university rather than an institute only for sober living students. However, Wisconsin has a “dry” campus and maintains its commitment to this standard. Students are punished if caught with illegal substances on campus. Additionally, the university has sober living housing for addicted students or for students who want to avoid temptation. Mild addicts may find a more mainstream setting more appealing.

University of Rhode Island

  • The University of Rhode Island is another traditional university with a dry campus. The school is not known as a party school, so many students naturally avoid alcohol anyway. Yet the university maintains sober living housing on campus for students who want no interaction with drugs or alcohol.

Pomona College

  • Pomona College relies on its honor code to keep the campus dry. Students kick off each year with a “dry week” during which they pledge not to drink alcohol or do drugs on campus. The school asks students to comply with the same rules for the remainder of the school year, and generally, students obey.
