    Manor Hall Details

    Manor Hall is located on Englewood Avenue between the Heights and Sorin Residence Hall. In 1922, the newly completed Manor Hall, which housed all women at the time, provided a gracious and architecturally distinctive addition to the Hamline University campus. With its picturesque stone tower sheltering the main entrance, and its half timbered-construction, Manor Hall suggests a scene out of the English Midlands. This Tudor-style residence hall houses over 100 students on coed floors in single, double, triple, and quad rooms.

  • Features and Furnishings

    Room furnishings include a desk, desk chair, window coverings, bed, bookcase, MicroFridge unit and closet space for each student. In some configurations, some of these items may be shared between roommates. The furniture in the rooms are arranged in a standard setup with bunked beds.

    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 and students are asked not to move lounge furniture. There will be a penalty to any student who is found with lounge furniture in their rooms. Furniture may not be moved from student rooms, and built-in furniture may not be dismantled or moved.

  • Manor House Staff

    The Resident Assistants and Area Coordinator are committed to building and maintaining a positive community environment. They plan social, educational, recreational, and cultural programs for residents. Resident Assistants (RAs) live on each floor or wing of the residence halls and provide direct support and assistance to residents. RAs are specially trained to offer programs, activities, support, and referrals for floor members as needed. RAs host a variety of social program 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.

    Manor Hall Council

    Manor Hall Council is a representative group of residential students who support the mission of the Office of Residential Life, take action to improve the students' residential experience and foster community ownership and pride. Hall Council hears the concerns of residents and works to address those concerns by utilizing community resources to plan activities and make capital improvements to the house, promote community respect and accountability, and establish clear and consistent communication among appropriate members of the Hamline University residential community. As a result Manor Hall Council empowers residents to stay informed about and invested in the development of their community, while offering leadership opportunity for students.
