Holder Hall is part of Rockefeller College, one of Princeton's six residential colleges. Students are randomly assigned to a college when they matriculate and spend their first two years living and dining there, after which they have the option to remain residents of their college or live in upperclass housing. The colleges provide a smaller community and support network for students to begin their collegiate experiences. Each college has a dining hall, a library, common spaces, seminar rooms, computer clusters, kitchens, and other facilities. The newest of Princetonís residential colleges, Whitman College, opened in 2007.

The colleges also offer a variety of social events and recreational activities including intramural athletics, lectures, trips to New York City and Philadelphia, foreign language tables, and study breaks. All freshman and sophomore advising is organized within the colleges.
