Residence Halls and Apartments
The majority of our resident students at Elizabethtown College students live in one of our six traditional residence halls or in two of our Independent Living Units, apartments and townhomes, on campus. Our residence halls all house both male and female students. Your housing options are listed to the left—Check them out!
A few of our residence halls are homes to learning communities, where students with a common interest or course live in the same residence and plan activities together. Aside from residence halls, apartments and townhomes, the College owns several single-family homes around the perimeter of campus. Groups of upper class students can apply to live in these homes, called Student-Directed Learning Communities, where they spend the academic year serving out a mission of the houses theme.
Heating Ventilation Air Conditioning (HVAC) information to consider as you select housing:
- Schlosser, Brinser, and Hackman Apartments have systems that are manually switched from heat to cooling between seasons depending on the temperature ranges that particular year. In the spring and fall rooms may get very warm during the day if we get particularly warm weather.
- Royer, Myer, and Ober have window units for air-conditioning. The units are installed during spring break and removed during fall break.
- Founders has PTAC units in each room much the same as a hotel room. Students have control of the heating and cooling unit in the rooms.
- Schreiber Quadrangle has heat pumps that heat and cool as needed year round.
*Under-class students who require year round air-conditioning due to a medical condition should choose either Founders or one of the residence halls with installed window units and work with Disability Services to request the units remain in year round.
