The Huntingdon Village
The Huntingdon College Office of Student Affairs and Office of Residential Communities strives to provide students with opportunities for growth along with a welcoming and fun atmosphere. On-campus living enables students to maximize the Huntingdon experience without missing any of the action.
Huntingdon’s five traditional residence halls (Blount, Hanson, Ligon, Searcy and Trimble) offer single and double rooms with varying configurations. In recent years, the College has acquired a number of houses and apartment units in the surrounding neighborhood to provide upperclassmen with unique residential experiences. Imagine sharing a home with friends, sitting on the back porch having a jam session, cooking dinner with your roommates … the Huntingdon Village is a distinctive residential experience.
Huntingdon College has a four-year residency requirement—students live in campus housing unless the student lives in his or her primary residence with a parent or guardian within 45 miles driving distance of the College or is approved for Commuter Status on the basis of applicable policies and guidelines as listed in the Scarlet or Grey Commuter Application linked below. Each student’s primary residence will be established by the student’s Application for Admission to the College. Transfer students will receive one year of residential credit for each year of full-time attendance at a post-secondary institution.
