Nowadays, the economy is becoming more complex and social processes are increasingly requiring students to become capable producers or consumers. Hence, it is widely regarded that a person must possess financial literacy as an economic entity. In addition to certain financial institutions, numerous educational institutions have made personal financial literacy education a priority. Obviously, residential colleges play an outsized role in students’ daily lives and should provide an environment in which resident students can learn the skills needed for financial independence. This chapter therefore reviews the extent to which financial literacy activities are embedded in residential colleges through a systematic review method. It also provides practical guidelines on how financial literacy education can be conducted in residential education.
