Since Hiram is a residential campus, there are many on-campus options for students. For first-year students, it is common for them to live in a traditional double room. This promotes community, especially when freshmen live on all-freshman floors. The cleanest freshman dorm is Booth-Centennial, but the dorms with the best sense of community are the ones with floor lounges—Whitcomb and Miller. Henry Hall has a reputation for being favorable among the quieter, more reserved students, whereas the Quad is popular for the rowdy type.
If you are a sophomore, you have the option of living in the apartment-style dorms in East Hall, which are the newest dorms on campus. You can also opt to live in Bowler Hall, which is the most historic dorm on campus. As a junior or senior, you can choose to live in the new Townhouses, which are technically owned by campus but are independent of the school and come equipped with kitchens and their own parking lot.
