Housing and food costs

Living on campus in one of our historic and charming residence halls provides you with the opportunity to learn more about yourself and acquire necessary life skills through involvement in a residential community.

Here at Hamline, we are committed to ensuring that the residential communities are welcoming and inclusive. That means your community will be made up of individuals from diverse backgrounds, including race, gender, religion, and sexual orientation.
