• 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 students 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. 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, 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.

  • Heights Staff

    The Resident Assistants and Area Coordinator are committed to building and maintaining a positive community environment. In addition to hall council, they plan social, educational, recreational, and cultural programs for residents. Resident Assistants (RAs) lives on each floor of the residence halls. RAs host a variety of social programs during the first week of classes. These programs are designed to provide residents the opportunity to meet, mingle, and build community. The staff also plans a variety of activities throughout the year.

    Want to get to know your RA a little bit? Or maybe find out some good things to bring or not to bring? Look no further. We've asked our RAs to each write a letter to their incoming students and they delivered. Check them out and get a sneak peak at one of the friendliest faces you'll see around campus!
