Common Areas

Common areas of our residence halls offer our students a place to study, hang out, watch a movie, play some pool, ping pong or fooseball. These areas and their furnishings are for all residents to enjoy.


Each residence hall kitchen or kitchenette has a microwave, an electric range and oven, a refrigerator/freezer, as well as counter space and cabinets. While kitchens are not intended to prepare a resident's daily meals, residents have the option to bake and prepare food for special occasions.


Vending machines are available in every residence hall to satisfy that craving for a snack or cold beverage. All vending machines accept the Hartwick College Wickit card and money for convenience.


There is at least one study lounge and one social lounge in each traditional residence hall. Some social lounges include a kitchen or kitchenette. Lounge TVs have basic cable service and can also be used for watching movies and gaming. Study lounges are also "wireless" access locations. Lounges are used for floor programs and can be reserved for special occasions, reserve the space with your Residential Life professional staff member.
