Knox College offers its students a multitude of residence hall options. Historic houses, apartments, suite-style residence halls and traditional residence halls make up one of the most diverse selections of any college. Listed below is each option, a description of the selection process that applies to it, and some information about what each residence offers.
These rooms are for students with medical situations that require single room occupancy. Documentation from a doctor or other health care professional is required and must be provided to Disability Support Services and the Campus Life Office for verification.
Students wishing to live in housing provided by their Greek organization will conduct their own housing lottery. Once you have committed to live in a fraternity house, you will be ineligible to participate in the campus lottery process.
These rooms are available to the student body at large and are limited in quantity. They are located throughout campus. Singles are not available in the general selection, so if you do not receive one, you should look for a roommate.
Block Housing is an option available for a group of students (8 students maximum) who wish to live together in one residential area. Block Housing is available in the following residences:
Priority will be determined by averaging each group's priority numbers. The group with the lowest average will be offered block housing first, followed by the group with the second-lowest average, and so on.
NOTE: Griffith Hall and Longden Hall have only one bathroom, so residents must make arrangements to share these facilities.
Descriptions of the available residences are also available.
For many students, the chance to live in one of Knox's three apartment buildings is a very important aspect of their junior or senior year. Students choosing to live in the apartments must remain on the board plan.
