If you are considering Endicott College for your undergraduate degree starting in 2020, chances are good that you have already scoped out our first-year student housing options online. We genuinely hope that you can join us on a tour or at an open house, but for those who have scheduling conflicts, or for people who just want the inside scoop, we’re ready to help you out.


All first-year student housing is located within the first-year area, which has been created to strategically allow new students to get to know each other and easily access first-year programming and events. First-year students have a wealth of housing options including Brindle Hall, Peter Frates Hall, Wenham Hall, Hamilton Hall, Reynolds Hall, Endicott Hall, Hale Hall, and Trexler Hall. Each residence hall has unique features that make them desirable, but finding the right fit is easier when you compare and contrast them directly. Below, you will find a “snapshot” of each.


Brindle Hall


Brindle Residence Hall

 

The feel: Brindle Hall was renovated in Summer 2017 and 2018, so it feels very new. This residence hall is situated next to Endicott Hall overlooking the first-year quad. Brindle offers a traditional residential experience with large and bright common rooms to study and connect with friends in. 


  • Ocean-facing common spaces 

  • Co-ed building; same gender per floor 

  • Majority of rooms are traditional doubles; some singles and triples 

  • Common bathrooms by gender; single, accessible bathroom on each floor 

  • Common laundry, kitchenettes, and lounge spaces


Peter Frates Hall

Peter Frates Residence Hall

The feel: As it just opened in Fall 2016, Peter Frates Hall is the newest residence hall in the first-year area. The building is full of amenities and thoughtful, themed Peter Frates décor. This hall backs the first-year quad, where you can often find students playing Spikeball or guitar. It is also located within a stone’s throw from the ocean. 


  • Inspired by amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS) champion and Beverly, Mass., native, Peter Frates 

  • Co-ed building and floors

  • Rooms are traditional-style quads 

  • Common bathrooms by gender; single, accessible bathroom on each floor 

  • Common laundry, kitchenette, lounge spaces, and study space 


Wenham Hall (Healthy Living) 

Wenham Residence Hall

The feel: Wenham Hall was once a stable and part of the larger estate of Hamilton Hall, located directly next door. This historic building has been modernized with air conditioning and updated amenities, but it still has remnants of its current state with sliding stable doors and classic finishing touches. 


Like Hamilton Hall, it sits alongside the ocean up on a cliff and has access to a beautiful oceanfront lawn. It is a peaceful and exciting place to live.


  • Co-ed building and floor

  • Majority of rooms are traditional doubles and triples

  • Private bathroom within each room

  • Common laundry, full kitchen, and lounge space


Hamilton Hall (Healthy Living) 

Hamilton Residence Hall

The feel: Hamilton Hall is a step back in time, in the best possible way. Several rooms have direct ocean views, and no two are alike. The lawn, which is shared with Wenham Hall, is expansive and stunning. Yoga enthusiasts (and non-yogis!) will love the peaceful atmosphere and close connections this residence hall fosters. 


  • Converted estate with sprawling, ocean-facing lawn 

  • Co-ed building; same gender per floor 

  • Variety of rooms—singles, doubles, triples, and quads 

  • Semi-private, gender-neutral bathrooms 

  • Common laundry, full kitchen, and lounge spaces 


Reynolds Hall

Reynolds Residence Hall

The feel: Reynolds Hall is one of the oldest residence halls on campus, and as such, it has garnered an incredible reputation. Many alumni think fondly on their days in Reynolds, and incumbent freshmen love it for its grandeur and style. The house is on the main campus road, but feels like a secret gem. Those who love historic homes filled with light and period details such as antique wood molding will be very at home in this sprawling estate.


  • Historic, renovated mansion featuring the main floor “Oak Room” 

  • Co-ed building; same gender per floor 

  • Majority of rooms are traditional triples; some singles, doubles, and quads 

  • Combination of private and semi-private bathrooms as well as gendered common bathrooms

  • Common laundry, kitchenette, and lounge spaces 


Endicott Hall

Endicott Residence Hall

The feel: Endicott Hall offer students two adjoining triples with a shared entry and private bathroom for six. This style of residence hall is incredibly appealing to its residents who wish for a more private bathroom. This hall is located right next to Brindle Hall and up the stairs, past the first-year quad from Peter Frates Hall. 


  • Majority of rooms are two adjoining triples with a shared entry and private bathroom

  • Common laundry, kitchenette, and lounge spaces 


Hale Hall

Hale Residence Hall

The feel: As it is one of the smaller first-year residence halls, Hale Hall offers a tight-knit community experience. A large open second floor common space provides ample opportunity for community building and connections. It is quiet and personal, but is located within the main hub of the first-year area.


  • Co-ed building; same gender per floor 

  • Rooms are traditional doubles and singles

  • Semi-private bathrooms, designated by gender 

  • Common laundry, full kitchen, and lounge spaces 


Trexler Hall

Trexler Residence Hall

The feel: Trexler Hall is located at the top of the hill next to College Hall. It sits among tall trees, and offers cool ocean breezes. There is plenty of space for students in the large bright common room to study and socialize. 


  • Co-ed building; same gender per floor 

  • Rooms are doubles, singles, and triples 

  • Common bathrooms by gender 

  • Common laundry, kitchenette, and lounge space 


First-year students are placed into housing based on their deposit date to the College and then their Housing Preference Form. The Housing Preference Form allows students to rank their building choices. Most students choose to have the College place them with unknown roommates. Please know when students choose others to live with, the latest deposit date of the pair/group will be used when placing students into housing. It is also important to note that when students choose to live with others, it is likely they will be placed with others who they did not request as many first-year students are in triples and quads. 


No matter which residence hall students are assigned to, all have access and support from the Office of Residence Life staff, students supports, student-centered activities, and 24/7 Endicott Public Safety and Police Department.
