Housing is provided as an optional service for all students taking classes on Hiram's Campus for a low cost. Room reservations for Friday and/or Saturday night(s) are made in advance for the term (or semester, if the student chooses to reserve a room for both the 12-week and three-week terms). There are, however, a limited number of extra rooms available each weekend in case of emergencies (inclement weather, etc.) or unexpected stays. Requests are made in the Weekend College office during or after registration weekend (the sixth weekend of each term). While every effort will be made to accommodate all students wishing to stay in the residence hall, requests for housing will be accepted and filled in the order in which they are received in the Weekend College office. Under normal circumstances, students will not have to share a room. However, Hiram College reserves the right to assign roommates if needed.
Students are housed on the third or fourth floor of Gray and Bancroft Halls (located next to the Kennedy Center). Sheets, blankets, pillows, and towels are provided at the beginning of each term for a nominal fee of $5.00 for the semester. Room fees are a reasonable $20 per night.
Entry cards and keys are issued by the Office of Professional and Graduate Studies on the first weekend of the term. For convenience, students may keep their keys for the entire term (or the whole semester, if the student reserves a room for both terms). Students also may leave personal items in their rooms, but Hiram College assumes no responsibility for lost or stolen items. Students must return their entry cards and keys to the Weekend College office at the end of the term (or semester, if the room is reserved for both terms) or a charge will appear on their student bill. The charge will be $30 for the outdoor entry card and $5 for the dorm room key. If you lose either the entry card or key, please report it to the Weekend College (x5161) or Campus Safety office (x6107) immediately. Students also will be charged for any missing linens, pillows, blankets, towels, etc.
If a student decides to withdraw from housing, the Office of Professional and Graduate Studies must be notified. No credit or refund will be issued for unused housing unless the student cancels his/her room for the remainder of the term. For example, if a student does not use his/her room on the third and fourth weekends of class but occupies the room during the other four weekends, no refunds are given. However, if after staying the first three weekends a student officially cancels the remainder of the term, he/she is eligible to receive a refund for the unused weekends once the entry card and dorm room key are returned. All housing withdrawals must be made in the Office of Professional and Graduate Studies by the Wednesday before the weekend he/she will not be staying.
Contact the Office of Professional and Graduate Studies for Adult Students with questions regarding housing Monday-Friday by calling 330-569-5161. The rate per night for a dorm room on campus is $20.
