Riley Court Apartments

There are six apartment suites in the Riley Court Hauenstein and Hirschler Halls, providing housing for six students each. Apartments are open to both men and women, divided by suites.

Upperclassmen must apply to live in the apartments during the housing process. The apartments are part of residence life, with a hall director and resident advisor overseeing it.

Preference for living in the Riley Court apartments will be given to groups of six people, with upperclassmen being given priority within those groups.

Graduate students are eligible to live in the apartments. However, priority will be given to groups of six undergraduates. If any apartments are left after these groups of six register, there will be a room draw for any available apartments in groups of two. 

Students must plan to attend classes on the Bluffton campus for the entire academic year to live in the apartments. Student’s conduct record, GPA and seniority will be considered when assigning apartment lodging.

Suitemates will work together to furnish and arrange their common area. Apartment dwellers must select the Apartment Block 70 meal plan, which provides 70 meals in the Commons plus $150 in Beaver Bucks per semester. This gives the opportunity to cook your meals, while still providing access to meals in The Commons. Other meal plans can be purchased for an additional fee.

Originally built in 1969 as student housing and later used as faculty/staff offices, Hauenstein and Hirschler Halls were renovated into campus apartments in fall 2016.

  • Full kitchen with refrigerator, sink and stove

  • Cable tv jack
