    Drew Residence Hall

    Drew Residence Hall houses approximately 200 men and women in a multi-gender environment. Students enjoy lounges, including a performance stage, a gaming lounge, and flat screen TVs.

    Drew Residence Hall is also home to the Hamline University School of Education. Dean, faculty, and staff offices for the school, as well as classrooms, are housed in the building.

    Named in honor of Minneapolis attorney Charles M. Drew, a regular contributor to Hamline in the 1930s and 40s, the building originally served as a men's residence hall.

    Spotlight on:

    Campus life

    Living on campus provides extensive leadership opportunities for residents to positively affect their living communities. Each residence hall or complex has its own Hall Council. Hall Councils respond to resident issues, determine individual hall policies in appropriate areas, and develop social activities and programs such as dances, movies, guest speakers, or trips.

    I am now better educated about my world, more eloquent, and braver than I was as a first year. Living on campus has had huge impact on who I’ve become!
    -- Nikita Schanzenbach, Drew Hall

    School of Education

    Hamline's School of Education has a long history of excellence in education and was among the first to launch English as Second Language (ESL) programs, develop cohesive literacy efforts, focus on learning communities, and recognize the value of having both practitioners and theorists working collaboratively to provide rich learning experiences.
