Hamline Hosing, Dining options

Live well, dine well, all on campus

When you live on campus, we'll make you feel right at home. You’ll broaden your horizons and gain a sense of independence that extends past college. With a variety of places to eat and spend time with friends and classmates, you can make Hamline your own whether you’re sipping a cup of coffee from Starbucks in Anderson Center or grabbing some food from the Piper Grill to take back to your dorm for a spontaneous movie night.

Where to live on or off campus

Hamline’s on-campus residence halls and apartments are more than just places to eat and sleep. They are hubs of culturally rich living and learning environments that allow you to focus on your academic success, get involved, and get connected.

Living on campus was how I met my friends. I was part of Hall Council and the Residence Hall Association, and it connected me with a lot of people. It made it less scary to live away from home for the first time!
