Elmwood Residence Hall

Welcome to Elmwood!

A sneak peak at what your Elmwood room could look like!

Elmwood is certified at the Gold Level by the Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED), one of the highest environmental standards for construction, providing an environmentally sound community space for occupants and visitors. A 2010 renovation ensured that built-in wall mods like wardrobe and dresser units are LEED-approved, constructed with non-toxic lacquers with low VOCs for optimum indoor air quality and safety.

Living Learning Community info

In addition to traditional dorm rooms for student living, Elmwood houses a Living Learning Community for women. The group is open to both first years and returning students by application. Contact Eric Codding, director of residence life for more information or to apply.

The Global Connections Living Learning Community brings together international and domestic female students to live and learn in a joint environment. It is an opportunity for women to live and study with students from around the world. Returning students will serve as mentors/support as we help stand in the gap between different culture adjustments and traditions. Applicants should have international experience (studied/lived abroad) or students new the US and American culture. Programs and activities will be planned that emphasize cross cultural interactions with both intellectual and social dimensions.
