  • Hamline Heights Details

    The Heights is located on Englewood Avenue opposite the Hamline Apartments. Osborn, Peterson and Schilling Residence Halls, collectively known as the Hamline Heights, are identical buildings built in the late 1960's. Each building houses nearly 100 men and women. Osborn Hall, Peterson Hall, and Schilling Hall are co-ed communities with carpeted rooms.  All of the Heights buildings have themes designed to enhance the experience of first year students. 

    All of the lounges in the Heights Have recently been updated. The lounges provide a fabulous space for individuals to study or complete group projects, as well as a social space with big screen TVs with cable and gaming counsels. 

    The Heights Hall Council provides residents with activities and programs designed to enhance the residential experience. The Heights Hall Council has created a series of programs such as weekly movie nights and hall socials.

    Features and Furnishing

    Room furnishings include a desk, desk chair, window coverings, bed, dresser, and wardrobe for each student. One MicroFridge unit is provided for each room. Furniture in the Heights is stackable, meaning that furniture pieces can be set on top of each other and beds can be bunked.  Layouts of suggested furniture configurations will be available during new student move-in.   Students are not allowed to use home made lofts. Mattresses are extra-long twin 36" x 80". Room styles in the Heights include double, quad, and a small number of single rooms.  Two triple rooms are available in Peterson Hall. 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. Please note:  Furniture may not be moved from student rooms, and built-in furniture may not be dismantled or moved. Even if a student is occupying a double room alone, furnishings for a second student may not be moved from the room.
