Apartments

Knox offers approximately 190 apartment spaces for students on campus. Based on the results of the apartment lottery, seniors generally live in apartments as students with the best lottery numbers have generally chosen the apartments.

Three buildings -- Hamblin Hall, 240 W. Tompkins and 284 W. Tompkins -- are located on the northwest corner of the Knox College campus.

While each apartment features a full kitchen, students living in apartments are still required to remain on-board per the policies as outlined in the Student Handbook. Students are responsible for cleaning and maintaining their own apartments and are responsible for leaving them in good condition at the close of the year.

There is an higher housing cost to live in an apartment.

A complete schedule of all college costs will be sent to students later in spring term.  Students may add an additional student to their apartment application  to be charged the double room fee. The lower fee is only during terms when the apartment is at overload status. No preference or penalty during the apartment lottery is given to overload applications. Students living in singles in the 284 W. Tompkins apartments will only be charged the apartment fee. Students living in Hamblin singles will be charged a special rate; check the fee schedule posted for exact amounts.

Hamblin Hall

Hamblin Hall underwent a major renovation in the summer of 2007. New furniture, carpets, and kitchen applicances were installed, and central air and additional rooms were added.  The renovation also included an elevator.

Students living in Hamblin's two apartments containing four singles will not be permitted to overload the apartments.
