Freshmen Housing


First-Year Students are housed in traditional residence halls located up-campus. Through these arrangements, students engage in the full college experience within a community living environment.

Each room includes a bed, desk and chair, dresser, and a closet or wardrobe. Each floor also includes a Resident Assistant to coach and guide student residents. All residence halls are co-educational by either floor or wing, and each hall has at least one lounge, laundry room and kitchen area.

At Hodge, the first floor provides a gender inclusive environment with gender-neutral restrooms and co-educational dorm rooms. Along with that, the first floor also provides handicap-accessible amenities to students upon request.
