When you stroll into the front doors of Hinderlie Hall, get ready to be greeted by a group of students just sitting around chatting about the day or their latest interesting ideas, who will be ready to welcome you into the conversation.

"There's really an energetic, family feel to this hall," says one Hinderlie resident.

They also noted that so many students leave their doors open for anyone to drop in and chat, that it may take a while to get back to your own room!

Hinderlie Hall is a fantastic place for the appreciator of art, whether you consider yourself an artist or just enjoy being serenaded while you work on homework. 

Hinderlie has a special relationship with faculty from a wide variety of disciplines because we have a learning community celebrating creativity and expression in diverse forms.

In Hinderlie Hall you will get a residence hall experience with the added value of relationships with faculty and a shared community appreciation for the world of art. Located close to Mary Baker Russell Music Center and Ingram Hall and central to the entire campus, it is convenient to everything regardless of your major! Hinderlie is also home to one of two Gender Neutral wings on campus, providing a safe, inclusive and affirmative community for all who live there. Hinderlie Hall offers an artistic, creative living-learning environment, a great location, and a welcoming community. For more information click here.

Residents of Hinderlie are fiercely loyal to their hall and revel in the hall's annual Toga Party, which includes music, games and creative ways of twisting bed sheets to create acceptable body coverings.
