Townhouses, East Hall, and All-Gender Applications

All-Gender Housing Sign Up

Students who would like to live in the All-Gender community in Bowler Hall must apply and be approved before housing sign-ups.  The All-Gender Housing Application will be available online starting on February 21st and will be due by March 27th.  Double and single rooms will be available.  Approval notifications will be emailed to students on April 6, 2020.  In addition to the online applications, each approved member of the community will need to make a $100 housing deposit in the Student Accounts Office or online at www.hiram.edu/housingdeposit to receive a Returning Student Housing Contract.

Townhouse Sign Up

Students who would like to live in a Townhouse must apply and be approved before housing sign-ups.  Each individual will need to complete the online Townhouse Application. The individual applications of each student will be considered when making an overall decision regarding the group’s approval status. Please make sure your selection of roommates is well considered as the strength of their applications will influence the decision of whether or not to approve the group.  Notifications will be made via email on April 3, 2020.

Once townhouse groupings have been approved, individual student lottery numbers for each group member will be added together to create a group lottery number. For example: If Student A’s lottery number is 13, Student B’s lottery number is 9, Student C’s lottery number is 49, and Student D’s lottery number is 28 the group lottery number would be 99.  In the case where two group lottery numbers add up to the same number, the lowest individual lottery number will be given priority. The group lottery number will be used to determine which groups will receive a townhouse.  The groups with the lowest 26 numbers (the townhouse group lottery number) will receive an email on April 3rd with information regarding housing sign-ups. A wait list will be made from remaining groups not invited to sign-ups.  Each member of the group will need to make a $250 lease deposit in the Student Accounts Office or at www.hiram.edu/housingdeposit to receive a Townhouse Lease.  

Please note that if your group is approved to live in a townhouse for the 2020-21 academic year you will all be required to provide proof of property insurance before being issued keys. 

Also, for the 2020 – 2021 school year residents of the Townhouses are required to purchase a partial meal plan offered by the college.  Students will have the choice of purchasing a Silver, Gold, or Platinum Meal Block Plan.  If a student does not indicate a preference, their plan will default to the Gold Plan. Please visit the Dining Hall webpage for more information regarding the meal plan options.
