    Manor House Details

    Manor House is located on Englewood Avenue between the Heights and Sorin Residence Hall. In 1922, the newly completed Manor House, which housed all women at the time, provided a gracious and architecturally distinctive addition to the Hamline University campus. With its picturesque stone tower sheltering the main entrance, and its half timbered-construction, Manor House suggests a scene out of the English Midlands. This Tudor-style residence hall houses 150 men and women in multi-gender arrangements for sophomores, juniors, and seniors in singles, doubles, triples, and quads.  

    The atmosphere in Manor tends to be quiet; however there is still a very active community in the house. Manor has an active Hall Council whose past programs have included ice cream socials, field trips to events in the greater twin cities metro area, and movie nights.
