Congratulations on choosing Doane College as your new home away from home! We're excited to welcome to our beautiful campus. Since 1936, Doane College has pursued a residential philosophy. Although it varies year to year, approximately three quarters of our student body live in the residence halls. For more information, please see below for an overview of Residence Life and the Residence Halls, or follow the links on the left side of the screen.
Residence Halls at a Glance
- Doane College has six residence halls with a combined capacity of 825 residents. Smith Hall, Sheldon Hall, and Frees Hall are traditional style. Hansen Leadership Hall and Burrage and Colonial Halls (the "Quads") are suite style.
- Smith is co-ed by room. Frees and Sheldon are co-ed by wing, but Sheldon also has one floor reserved entirely for women.
- Hansen and the Quads are restricted to upperclassmen, with the exception of Directions students in Hansen.
- More information about our halls is available here.
Furniture in the Halls
Every room on campus is furnished, but students sometimes choose to bring some of their own furniture, such as futons. All residence halls provide lofts to residents. Furniture policy allows residents to bring small fridges, book shelves, office chairs, or modular shelving/drawers (like the kind Rubbermaid and other companies make). If you have any questions about furniture you would like to bring, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
We offer quite a few amenities in our halls, including laundry facilities and a wireless network. As an incoming student, you will learn more about the amenities when you attend your Enrollment Day. We also provide a list of what to bring when you move into the halls. In addition to the many amenities, Residence Life and Housing allow you to bring keep fish as pets. Due to hygiene and possible damage, no other pets are allowed in the halls.
Leadership in the Halls
Are you a leader in high school looking to continue leading in college? Is leading a new experience that you would like to try out at Doane? Look no further! In addition to RAs, students can also join the Residence Hall Association, a representative board for all residents of the Crete campus. RHA meets weekly, and you're always welcome to attend.
