Hartzfeld Residence Hall

Hartzfeld houses 100 students in four two-story buildings and is among the most popular residence halls available to sophomores and above. Rooms are arranged in suite-style housing: four students in two adjoining rooms share bath facilities. 

Hartzfeld offers students a great place to interact with their community in the central lounge with fireplace and spacious community kitchens. Hartzfeld buildings are small enough - only 25 residents each — to provide each resident with privacy, yet plenty of opportunities to meet new people.

With only 25 occupants per building, the residents in Hartzfeld tend to get to know their neighbors and create a community quickly. To help make this happen, a Resident Advisor (RA) oversees each building. Each RA is responsible for planning programs throughout the year, ranging from things like ice cream socials to study abroad info sessions and everything in between. The Hartzfeld RAs are also skilled in peer support and mediation skills to help residents wanting to improve their connection to roommates and the community, should the need arise. Likewise, as undergraduate juniors and seniors, RAs are great resources for information about the campus and Portland communities.

Winter Break Consolidation: Important Note for Hartzfeld Residents 

During winter break, residents with approved winter break applications living in Copeland, Platt-Howard, Stewart, Akin, Odell, and Forest will be asked to consolidate (move) into Hartzfeld spaces. This means that Hartzfeld residents leaving campus for winter break may be asked to pack their rooms (boxes and on-campus storage provided) to be used as winter break housing.  Hartzfeld residents with a need to remain on campus for winter break will not be asked to leave and may remain in their space after completing a winter break housing application. Please see more information about winter break closing in the “Applying for Housing- Winter Housing” section of this website.
