Apple Hall

Located near the College Union Building, Apple Hall provides apartment-style housing for upperclass students.

Apple Hall, named after John A. Apple, first opened in 1959. An addition, Apple Annex, was added in 1968. The entire complex was renovated in 1986, and today Apple Hall houses 209 upperclass students in apartment-style housing. It is located near the College Union Building, the Dining Center, Bream/Wright/Hauser Athletic Complex and most academic buildings.

Each apartment in Apple Hall has a full kitchen (including a full-size refrigerator and range) and a full bathroom with shower-only units.  The bathrooms accommodate one person at a time, and are gender-neutral.  The kitchens in Apple Hall are not equipped with microwave ovens, dinnerware or cookware.

Kitchens in the Annex section of Apple Hall have a counter-space area with bar stools, while kitchens in Apple Hall have a table with chairs.

In the summer of 2008 Gettysburg College purchased custom furniture for Apple in order to maximize space so that all bedroom furniture can be accommodated in each room.  Due to the size of some rooms it is necessary or recommended that one or two of the beds be elevated either to a half height setting using a "junior lost" bed set or full height using a regular bed set.  Please refer to the floor plans posted online (in CNAV, MyHousing) to review the list of rooms where beds should be elevated.

Each bedroom has carpeting and built-in closet space, a desk, a dresser, and an extra-long bed (38 inches x 80 inches x 6 1/2 inches) for each resident.  Students may loft or bunk their beds by acquiring the additional pieces necessary to do so. These pieces will be available in your building lobby during the first several weeks of the fall semester. There is approximately 15 inches between the floor and the bottom of the bed.  To gain additional storage space below the bed, students may use bed risers, which are available for purchase at the College Bookstore.

The common area furniture consists of a sofa, a chair and a coffee table.

The third floor of Apple Hall (apartments 300-308) is loft apartments.  There are stairs within each unit that lead to additional sleeping areas on a second floor.
