Residence Life

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.

Project Houses

A Project House consists of students with a common interest and a desire to promote that interest to the campus community.

The three project houses for the 2015-16 academic year are:

  • Food House 
  • Eco House
  • Volunteer House

If you and 8 to 12 fellow students share a common interest and would like to start a new project house, Grinnell’s Residence Life Committee can help you get started.
