We are fortunate to have a strong incoming class and a stronger than expected enrollment overall. Due to the pandemic, we will have more seniors finishing their degrees during the fall semester than is typical, and about half as many juniors will study abroad this fall than in previous fall semesters. These factors combine to make for a full campus, and they also present an opportunity for us to think freshly about aspects of life on campus.
Plans to ease on-campus enrollment during the fall include additional housing options, increased occupancy for a select number of rooms on campus, plus Kenyon-Copenhagen, a new semester-long program in designed specifically for first-year students.
The Kenyon Inn
The Kenyon Inn is temporarily transitioning to student housing and will accommodate approximately 59 students in double-occupancy rooms.
The College has leased 19 condominium apartments at The Pines, located at Apple Valley Lake, eight miles from the Kenyon Bookstore. Each apartment will accommodate four students.
Ten of Kenyon's McIlvaine Apartments will be used for student housing, with three students in each apartment.
Expanded Occupancy in Existing Housing
Residential Life will provide 31 additional spaces throughout College housing by converting select doubles to triples and singles to doubles. Apartment occupancy will also be expanded.
