Akin houses 64 students on two floors in primarily double occupancy rooms.
As home to the Multicultural Engagement Community, our mission in Akin Hall is to engage in dialogue and exploration of the diversity of our many heritages, values, and identities. In collaboration with students, staff, and faculty, we work to educate and to be educated by one another. Akin Hall seeks to enrich the experience of the student body and the Lewis & Clark community by promoting intercultural understanding and celebration.

The residents of Akin say that the advantages of this hall include its large comfortable rooms, its location on campus, and the sense of community provided by the people who choose to live here.
The rooms are recently carpeted and contain walk-in closets and new movable furniture. Each floor has a large lounge and kitchen.
In the main lounge, you can often find students chatting around a cozy fire, cooking delicious food, or playing the grand piano. A basement game room provides residents with a number of additional entertainment opportunities.
Akin residents take advantage of the daily opportunity to honor and explore our exciting and diverse cultural identities.
Akin sponsors a number of diversity-focused programs each year, including the annual Multicultural Fair (Fall Term) and International Fair (Spring Term).
