Residence Halls

In addition to providing students safe, comfortable living spaces, the residence halls at Grinnell College foster a sense of community, and provide a living and learning environment which complements their academic experience. Within these halls, Grinnellians learn to practice self-governance and incorporate the philosophy in their daily lives. Student volunteers fill the roles of Student Advisors, Hall Social Coordinators and Hall Wellness Coordinators, and are charged with building community and serving as a resource for their residents.
