Carvin, called the Global Village, is one of the “Hill Houses,” and is home to international and American students interested in sharing and learning global perspectives.
East is divided into three sections:
- Near East Fine Arts (NEFA) houses students with an interest in the arts
- Middle East is the Spanish House
- Far East is home to the Mind, Body, Spirit (MBS) community
The Francophone House is a living-learning option open to students who are studying French during their academic career at Hollins. It is a wonderful and inclusive space for those who love the French language, French-speaking cultures (from the Americas, Africa, Europe…), and/or are preparing for study abroad.
As one of the “Hill Houses” renovated in 2011, Rose Hill lodges a small community of no more than nine students. In keeping with Hollins’ commitment to sustainability, Rose Hill was constructed with sustainable materials and furnishings. A geothermal heating and cooling system was also installed.
One of the “Hill Houses,” Sandusky is a specialty house for students committed to service learning. The students of Sandusky help create community-service projects for all students.
