• Hamline Heights Details

    The Heights buildings are located on Englewood Avenue across from 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 in coed communities with carpeted rooms.  

    Each of the Height's buildings has a first floor lounge which provides a 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. 

    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. The standard room set up includes bunked beds.  Students can contract with Bedloft.com to have the beds lofted.  Mattresses are extra-long twin  and measure 36" x 80". Room styles in the Heights include double, quad, and a small number of single rooms.  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.
