Campus Housing

Campus Housing

All of Hanover’s campus housing options are located within minutes of our classrooms, library, fitness, arts and social areas.

We are proud to say that living on campus is an important and meaningful part of the Hanover experience. As a residential campus, all students are required to live on campus for all four years at Hanover College.

Exceptions to living on campus include living with your legal guardian at their permanent home address (within 30 miles of campus), being 24 years of age or older, being married at the start of the fall term, having dependent children living with you at home or being a part-time student.

Each residence hall has its own community that supports each other and socializes through events hosted by their resident assistants. Resident Assistants (RAs) are students living on each floor in a residence hall and are responsible for nurturing and maintaining the development of a close-knit and respectful community.

You are probably wondering, what’s included in a typical room here at Hanover? Every room includes a bed, desk, chair, dresser and wardrobe for each resident. All rooms have WIFI access and you get access to free television channels via our partnership with SpectrumU. Each residence hall has common bathrooms on each floor and one laundry facility.
