• Sorin Hall Details

    Sorin Residence Hall is located on Englewood Avenue to the west of Manor House. Originally dedicated as a women's hall in 1958, Sorin Hall is named after Elizabeth and Emily Sorin. The Sorin sisters were Hamline University's first female graduates who received both B.A. and M.A. degrees. Sorin Hall houses over 100 men and women students on single-gender floors, including two female floors and one male floor. All rooms in Sorin Hall are double occupancy and feature ample storage space, large windows, and direct access to the Sorin game room located on the first floor. Sorin Hall is barrier-free.

    Sorin Hall Council

    The Sorin Hall Council is the voice for students who live in Sorin Hall. The council provides a forum for discussion and implementation of programs, topics, and situations pertaining to the well-being and maintenance of Sorin Hall. It also acts as an advisor, associate, and liaison for Sorin Hall residents in all possible matters concerning Sorin Hall. All residents of Sorin Hall are encouraged to participate in hall council! Residents may get involved by running for a position on the Sorin Hall Council executive board or by attending hall council meetings.

    Information Desk

    Sorin Information desk is centrally located in the building lobby of Sorin Hall. The desk is open 7 days a week. The desk is staffed by upper-class students, who either live in on campus or have lived on campus in the past. They are extremely knowledgeable about the campus and are a terrific information resource. At the information desk, residents can check out sports equipment, board games, Play Station 3 games, and other handy items free of charge. 

  • Features and Furnishings

    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.
