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.


Hope is a four-year college where students live on-campus for their first three years. We believe living on-campus is an important part of your Hope experience. Our housing system offers several diverse options for you to choose from as well as the ability for you to choose who you would like to live with. Housing assignments are for both semesters unless you plan to study abroad during the 2021–22 academic year.

Please email housing@hope.edu for any 2021–22 returning student housing questions.
