/ Residential Life and Housing

On-Campus Housing

Hope College is a residential college. We are committed, by choice, to be a living learning community. Through your residential experience, you'll grow within your community, learn what it means to be a good neighbor in a global society and develop skills to prepare you for independent living post-graduation.

As you learn, develop and grow in and outside the classroom, your Hope housing options grow with you. Our housing options provide places where you can anchor yourself throughout your college journey. On-campus housing is for currently enrolled students only.

Cottages

Most cottage assignments are filled by the residence assistants for each cottage. If you've been named by an RA to live in a cottage, complete your online housing application by February 23, 2022. Do not apply for an apartment if you have been named to live in a cottage.

Apartments

Apartment-style living is a popular selection for upper-class students. An array of small and large apartment complexes around campus and in downtown Holland are available for students to apply to live in.

Each size apartment has a different application and due date. Submit one application per group by the deadline. The applications must be complete (10 students on 10-person, etc).

Applications will be active starting February 14, 2022. If you have questions, please email housing@hope.edu.
