Hull Apartments

The Hull Apartments, with a capacity of 111 students, opened in the Fall of 2003. Preference is given to upper class students and those who already have lived in Grand View residence halls. The apartment units, which hold four, five or six people, provide a setting that gives you the ability to live within a small community and still have the larger campus environment around you.

Hull Apartments Living Room

Each furnished apartment has two bathrooms, a full kitchen, a living room/dining room and an individual bedroom for each resident. Laundry facilities are located on each floor, and the common lounge is equipped with a big-screen TV and kitchen.

Hull Apartments Kitchen

Hull Apartment residents are required to have a five-meal plan with the campus dining service, but the apartment kitchens provide all the amenities of home, so you can cook or bake anything you like. Those of you who want to live in an apartment but don’t enjoy cooking, can upgrade your account and head to the nearby Cafeteria in Knudsen Hall more often.


Nielsen Hall

Nielsen Hall, a three-story facility built in 1968, is home to 120 students who live in single and doubles rooms, some with baths. The hall is located at the east end of campus, between Knudsen Hall and the Apartments. This hall is named in recognition of former president Ernest Nielsen and his wife, Frances.

Nielsen Interior

Both men and women live in Nielsen Hall. The lower level of the building has laundry facilities as well as a newly renovated game and recreation room. There are lounges on each floor, perfect for talking to friends or holding meetings. Students who are a part of nPod, Grand View's nursing living-learning community live on first floor of Nielsen Hall and often hold meetings and gatherings in the lounge.

Nielsen Hall Room

Students are encouraged to personalize their Nielsen Hall rooms, which have Internet and cable television access. Residents are required to have a 15-or 20-meal plan for on-campus dining.

Bud's Place

Bud's Place, in the lower level of Nielsen Hall, sports a variety of recreational options.  Pool tables, electronic shuffleboard, big screen TVs, a snack bar and more make Bud's Place the perfect spot for a break between classes or an evening with friends.

Knudsen Hall

Knudsen Hall, renovated in 2004, houses 130 students -- both men and women -- on three floors. This hall, located at 1500 Morton, was completed in 1964 and named in honor of former president Johannes Knudsen and his wife, Ellen. It has laundry facilities and a vending machine area. Internet and cable television are provided. Knudsen is connected to the Wellness Center by an indoor walkway, so when you live here, you don’t have to venture out in bad weather if you want to go exercise.

Langrock Suites

The Langrock Suites house sophomore and junior-level students. Each suite has two bedrooms, as well as a living area and a bathroom. All residents have access to a second floor laundry room.
