Meet Our Whole Team.


Hilbert College Residence Life is excited to share that we will be doing an aggressive five year improvement plan on furniture and facilities. As a result, housing costs for some communities will increase, but communities with larger increases will directly see campus improvements prior to arrival as a result. 

For Year 1, campus improvements include:

  • New, commercial grade furniture for all campus apartments. The furniture is modular so students can adapt furniture to their space to truly make it feel like home. Additional improvements include; TV Wall Mounts for community TVs (students must bring their own TVs), ottomans that can serve as a coffee table or additional seating and intentional programming focusing on upperclassmen needs.
  • Residents will also obtain a 50 meal plan to assist in obtaining healthy meals at a cost-effective rate and $100/semester of Hawk Bucks to be used at 78 West. 
  • St. Joseph's Hall will be obtaining new furniture for community lounges along with increases in security measures. 

Students looking to see the new furniture, vote on fabric samples, and provide feedback for year 2's projects can attend housing information meetings or schedule an appointment with any professional staff member in Residence Life. 


We are extremely excited for these campus improvements and want your voice to be heard during this process. As one of the top ten housing facilities in NYS, our goal is to continue to be innovative with our approach to student housing and eventually become the best college housing in NYS.
