Hodson Hall


Hodson was constructed in 1996 originally as a women’s residence hall. In 1999 Hodson was converted to a men’s hall and is now home to 206 IWU men. Since it is a traditional hall housing Freshmen through Seniors, Hodson men benefit from the informal mentoring and peer support that can happen when students at every stage in their college experience share life and learning together. Hodson shares a common lawn with its sister hall, Evans. With two sand volleyball courts and a full-size lighted basketball court, the Hodson/Evans Lawn is alive with student activity and regularly hosts campus-wide programs and events.
