Holton-Hooker Learning & Living Center

About Cluster-Style:

Holton-Hooker is home to cluster-style units for first-year and honors students. Similar to traditional-style, cluster-style fosters a sense of community and residents quickly form relationships with each other. It’s common to see room doors propped open, hear music playing, residents chatting across the hall, and hanging out or studying in the lounges. This building has community style bathrooms, but offers lockers, private shower rooms, and less students per bathroom than traditional-style. Holton-Hooker is located on north campus near Fresh Food Co., Fuel, Kleiner Commons, the tutoring center, and Mackinac Hall, where most freshmen have classes. Cluster-style living encourages residents to build community by connecting with their floor mates, attend programing events, and other campus events. Holton-Hooker Learning & Living Center is also home to classrooms, meeting space, and Einstein Bros. Bagels, allowing students to focus more on classes and socializing in their space.
