Hope Hall South
About Hope South
Built in 2003, Hope Hall is the largest residence hall on campus, and is treated as two communities: the north end is known as Hope North, and the south end as Hope South, each with its own RD and staff of RAs. It was named in memory of the historic Biola building that was located at 6th and Hope St. in downtown Los Angeles. Hope is co-ed, with male and female students living in separate sections of the building, while sharing the lobbies, kitchens, and laundry facilities.
Hope South is staffed by 8 Resident Assistants, under the supervision of Resident Director Alyssa Ahern. Hope is a traditional 'dorm-style' hall with community restrooms, two elevators and three stairwells. The main lobby/lounge is a two-story atrium; the second floor lounge overlooks this area. There is also a large 4th-floor lounge with balcony patio, and two smaller lounges on each floor.
There is a centralized laundry room on the ground floor with 16 washers and 16 dryers. There is a large main-floor kitchen, and microwave nooks on each of the eight wings. There are eight oversized rooms, designed as 'triples,' and eight single rooms designed to accomodate students with disabilities. Behind Hope is an outdoor amphitheater that seats 200-400.
Hope is fully airconditioned. Each room is uses a keycard, rather than traditional room key. Each student is provided the same furniture in each room: 1 desk, a 2-shelf bookcase, 1 desk chair, 1 chest of drawers, a closet or wardrobe, 1 twin bed with mattress (36" x 74" innerspring mattress), and 1 mattress cover. Each room also has one telephone, one wastebasket, and window coverings (blinds/drapes).
