Housing Process

Here’s all the housing process information you need.


Welcome to the Hope College community! Living on campus is an integral part of your time at Hope. On May 1 (or after your deposit is received), the Admissions Office will mail out information on how to activate your Hope email and complete your housing application. If you have any questions, please contact the Admissions Office.


For the first three years of your Hope experience, you will live in on-campus housing.

If your parent or guardian lives withing 25 miles of campus, you may apply to commute from their permanent home address.

Fourth-year students can elect to live in on- or off-campus housing.

All online housing applications are due by March 8, 2019.
