Hobart House (Women's Residential College)

Constructed in 1928, Hobart House is home to Women’s Residential College (WRC). This fun—look no further than traditions like the Emily Awards, a nod to the building’s namesake—and supportive community hosts social events on a regular basis, including lunches with fellows (affiliated faculty and staff) and weekly munchies. The building has two full kitchens, a library, multiple lounges, and a furnished outdoor patio.

It’s easy to feel at home at Hobart when you’re surrounded by such a warm community.
