All first-year students live in one of the two first-year quads. Placement for first-year students is based on course selection and registration as a part of the First-Year Residential College Program. Residence hall living, a vital component of the Gettysburg Experience, is intended to facilitate the personal growth and development of each student.
Patrick Hall is a traditional residence hall that houses approximately 142 first-year students and consists of four floors and 84 rooms. Each room in Patrick Hall has tiled floors and typically houses two students, with male and female bathrooms on each floor. All bathrooms in Patrick Hall accommodate more than one person at a time and are single gender (male or female).
Each room in Patrick Hall has a MicroFridge, at least one window and shade, a bookshelf, and mirror.
Each student is provided with an extra-long bed (39 inches x 80 inches x 6 1/2 inches), a desk and chair; a dresser and closet space. The beds have three notches on each bed end to adjust the height of the bed. The first notch is approximately 13 inches off the floor; the second (middle) notch is approximately 18 inches off the floor; the third notch is approximately 23 inches off the floor. Students may also loft or bunk their beds by acquiring the additional pieces necessary to do so. Lofting the bed allows for furniture such as the dresser, desk, and desk chair to slide underneath the bed. The additional pieces to loft/bunk your bed will be available in your building common space during the first several weeks of the fall semester. During the rest of the year, the pieces can be requested by submitting a Facilities Helpdesk request.
For those interested in bringing a rug for your room, a good size approximation is 9' x 12'. Learn more about personalizing your room, including what you may or may not bring to campus.
