Campus Tour Highlights

Join Malia Staab '18 as she walks you across campus with highlights of the Earlham campus tour.

Currently, 94 percent of students reside on campus in one of eight residence halls or more than 20 theme and friendship houses.

Between 1998 and 2014, Earlham expanded, renovated, and constructed major campus buildings — including academic and  residence facilities — representing an investment of more than $40 million.

Residence Life

Take a look at Earlham's first-year residence halls — Barrett Hall, Bundy Hall and Olvey-Andis Hall. The College furnishes each student an extra-long, twin-size bed; a desk with a chair; and a dresser. Each room has a bookcase and a mirror. The kitchens have a microwave, a full-size refrigerator, and a stove. Limited storage space is available for over the summer.

See You Soon, Earlhamite!
