Room Draw

Grinnell College is a residential college. All full-time students are required to live in student residences and board with College dining all four years. Student residences at Grinnell College are distinctive from that of other residential colleges due to our residential philosophy and Room Draw practice.

Residence Life

Grinnell’s experienced, dedicated residence life team works with more than 70 volunteer student staff members to build a residential community that fosters social and personal development, encourages self-governance, and accommodates individual needs to help you achieve your goals.
