New Student Housing

Hood College requires all students to be vaccinated against COVID-19, with exemptions required by law, including medical contraindications and sincerely held religious beliefs. Students are required to be fully vaccinated and submit their COVID vaccination card by July 31. 

You'll soon move into your on-campus home away from home and begin your college journey!

New students will be assigned roommates in their housing assignment and communicated on July 22. New first-year and transfer students will be assigned to Coblentz, Smith, Meyran, and Shriner.
