The Department of Residence Life welcomes you to Grinnell. We hope that as a Grinnellian (a member of the Grinnell community) your residence hall becomes a home away from home, where you will make lasting memories, discover lifelong friendships, and develop into the best version of a Grinnellian.
We strive to provide a safe, healthy, comfortable, and welcoming residential living and learning environment. We look forward to engaging each and every individual student with the purpose of cultivating meaningful relationships and instilling a commitment to learning and social responsibility.
By living in one of our 19 residence halls, you will interact with Residence Life Coordinators and Community Advisors, who are talented and unique individuals. You will meet fellow students whose values, beliefs, and ideals are different than your own. The residential experience is one where the community is an appreciation of diversity and a respect for individuality. We hope you learn about your own identity and your identity as a Grinnellian.
I wish you well and much success in the upcoming year.
Joseph “Joe” Rolón
Director of Residence Life
