• Drew Hall Details

    Drew Hall is located on Hewitt Avenue opposite Bush Memorial Library. Drew Hall was named after Charles M. Drew, a United Methodist and generous donor to Hamline University. Originally a men’s residence hall built in 1946, Drew Hall is home to a close-knit coed community of 200 undergraduate men and women. Students live in double rooms and singles. Drew is home to two Special Interest Housing floors. Third floor Far East wing of Drew Hall is the Transfer Student Floor.

    Transfer students connect to one another and the greater Hamline community through special programming on the Drew Hall transfer floor. Transfer students often have unique needs. Living together with other transfer students and engaging in special activities and outings helps assist the transition process.

    Second floor Far East wing is home to the Advocacy and Action floor. The advocacy and action floor is a community of first year and returning students interested in learning about issues of social justice that include women’s rights, the GLBT community, race, and other areas of diversity such as religion, class, and internationalism. Students living on this floor commit to furthering their knowledge of social justice.

    Drew Hall Council

    The Drew Hall Council provides residents with activities and programs designed to enhance the residential life experience. Every year, the Drew Hall Council creates T-shirts and provides them to the residents of the building.

    Furniture in Drew is stackable, meaning that furniture pieces can be set on top of each other and beds can be bunked.  Students are not allowed to use homemade lofts. Mattresses are extra-long twin 36" x 80".

    You will need to provide your own pillow, blanket, linens, desk lamp, phone, and wastebasket. Furniture placed in lounges and public areas is for the use of all residents. In order to be fair to all, you are asked not to move lounge furniture. There will be a penalty to any student who is found with lounge furniture in their room.
