College Houses

Theme House Communities

Theme houses are elements of our residential life program that have special connections to our educational program. Many are supported by an academic department and advised by a member of the teaching faculty. These communities provide special experiences that extend various aspects of our educational program. Theme houses enable both majors and non-majors with an active interest in a field to live together and explore a theme in a more independent residential setting. Please read our Theme House Policy Statement.

The Campus Life Advisory Committee reviews Theme House communities every four years, and will begin the process this fall.  For the 2016-17 year, no new Theme House proposals are being accepted, in order to allow the Committee to establish standards and begin their work.

Students interested in living in a Theme House for the 2016-17 academic year can begin their application process through the Theme House Common Application.  The link to the online form is below, along with application information and deadlines for each Theme House in the Application Summary Sheet.

Resources

Friendship House Communities

Friendship Houses provide students with the opportunity to establish an intentional community, within the larger Earlham community, based on shared social, academic, or service-based interests. Unlike the Theme communities, Friendship Communities need not be connected with an academic department. Proposals that promote service, shared responsibility for house activities, and academic success are strongly preferred. Friendship communities should bear in mind the College's priorities on sustainability, wellness and living respectfully with our greater community.

To read more about process, application, and eligibility, please read the Friendship House Application Information document.
