Hawk House

Commuter students, need a space on campus to stay for the night? Contact Hawk House:

Hawk-House is a student-run hoteling system for dorm rooms on campus so that commuter students can have:

  1. A safe place to spend the night during midterms and finals weeks.
  2. Opportunities to get involved with nightly campus events and get more immersed in the student community.
  3. The chance to attend specialized "Hawk-House" programming and get access to in-house tutoring, health resources, and community events/seminars.

We plan to launch a 10-Room Pilot for Hawk House in Fall 2021. We hope this new service can offer you some relief! For now, go follow us on facebook and instagram (@iithawkhouse) to get all the latest news!
