Living the Suite Life
Hinman College consists of four- and six-person suites. A suite is rather similar
to an apartment, with two or three bedrooms, a lounge, and a bathroom with a stall
The two-bedroom suites house four students, and the three-bedroom suites house six students, all in double rooms. In thirty of the suites throughout Hinman, one of the bedrooms is occupied by the resident assistant as a single. These suites are typically reserved for freshmen to aid in fostering a welcoming connection and ease their transition. All floors in Hinman are co-ed, with male and female suites located on each corridor.
