Harmsworth Hall is our largest dorm and houses three distinct floors for boarders, separated by gender and age. These three floors operate as distinct housing groups and each has its own dorm counselors.
Harmsworth boasts all single rooms, which are organized in pods—three rooms together that share a bathroom with another pod. This unique housing arrangement provides the opportunity for rooming near friends while maintaining a private room.
Harmsworth Hall is home to the vast majority of junior and senior students and many describe it as more of an apartment feel.

“My favorite place on campus is Harmsworth. It‘s our home away from home. It’s a safe community filled with respect, acceptance, and inclusion. We actively foster strong lifelong bonds, forged by working and learning together, that go beyond our walls.”

“When you're a dorm counselor in Harmsworth Hall, you'll never experience a dull moment! Working with the students each day is like a box of chocolates: you never know what you’re going to get, but in the end, it’s always so fulfilling. Being able to interact with them and be a part of their growth and development has been a great experience!”
