Dykstra Hall houses 265 female, mostly first-year students. Along with Kollen Hall, Dykstra has the largest number of residential life staff to assist students with the transition into college life. It was built in 1967 and is named in the honor of Dr. John Dykstra.

Dykstra Hall is the only residence hall on campus set up in clusters, which are comprised of a fully furnished common living area surrounded by six to 10 private rooms. This arrangement makes it easy for first-year students to create close friendships that will last throughout their time at Hope and past graduation. Clusters are separated by bathrooms; each cluster has a mixture of double and triple rooms.
