One of the most rewarding and entertaining experiences of college, especially a small college like Hillsdale, is residence life. Students living in a residence hall or Greek house build friendships that last a lifetime, experience personal growth, and make memories that will be cherished for years to come.
All freshmen are required to live in a residence hall. Sophomores who have gone through recruitment may move into a Greek house, and juniors and seniors may apply for off-campus housing. However, you are guaranteed a room in a residence hall for all four years. Don’t worry; there will be time to explore life around campus.
All the residence halls at Hillsdale are single sex with the exception of the Suites, which features a men’s wing and a women’s wing separated by lobbies. Each dorm has a house director and student resident assistants, as well as housekeeping service to help reduce wear and tear on the buildings.
A mix of single- and double-occupancy rooms are available in most residences. Vending machines are available in all residences for those late-night munchies, as are laundry facilities, microwaves, toasters, and cable televisions.
As a campus community, we are committed to providing an enriching living environment conducive to success in both social and academic arenas.
