With the majority of students living on campus, Bromley gives upperclassmen an alternative to the typical residence hall. It consists of 30 apartments—29 for students, and one for the resident director. Eleven of these are six-person apartments and the remainder are four-person apartments. Bromley's interior and exterior were renovated in the summer of 1997.
Named in honor of Trustee Don Chase and his wife Barbara, Chase Hall has 162 beds and is organized as a series of suites with every two rooms sharing a shower and restroom. In addition to the double suites, Chase Hall also has a kitchen on each floor, three classrooms, and a spacious lounge area that overlooks the campus quadrangle. Chase is also designed for energy efficiency in accordance with Gordon's broader aim to promote renewable energy and resources on campus.
Located between Bromley Hall and Jenks Learning Resource Center, Drew houses 25 students—11 male and 14 female. It is an intimate community that benefits from its location alongside the campus Quad, and is the closest residence hall to the classrooms. With a newly added deck, it is a place where community is fostered in a distinctive way.
Opened in 1985, the year Barrington College of Rhode Island merged with Gordon. Ferrin is named for Howard W. Ferrin, a longtime president of Barrington College. It includes an open terrace on the lower level suitable for outdoor concerts and events. Ferrin contains double-occupancy rooms as well as five apartments.
Located next to Tavilla, Fulton houses 176 students and was dedicated in the fall of 2001. Architecturally, it is nearly identical to Tavilla and Nyland, but is set up as double-suites that share a bathroom/shower. There are many spacious lounges for hall activities as well as a common kitchen area.
Located next door to the Bennett Athletic Center, Gedney is a small residence hall for 26 students. Gedney House is an intentional community, a living/learning center devoted to engaging in authentic biblical relationships. Students living in Gedney are involved in planned activities both within the hall and across the Gordon campus. Its rooms are typical double and triple rooms, with a shared kitchen in a more intimate living atmosphere than a typical residence hall.
Along with Chase, these three residence halls (Evans, Lewis, and Wilson) are located alongside the campus quad, creating a 'neighborhood' style living community. The large shared lounges create an open space where students enjoy many events that have become traditions in their own right.
Completing the trio on the hill Nyland is a traditional common bathroom style residence for underclassmen. It was dedicated in 2003 in honor of David Nyland. Nyland has three lounges with kitchens and several common meeting/study rooms.
Located across from the Bennett Center along Grapevine Road, Rider and Dexter Halls are known informally as the road halls. Dexter is home to the Elijah Project: an intentional community of students dedicated to exploring the theological foundations and practical outworking of God's call on our lives. Rider is an all-male hall which was remodeled during the 2006 summer break.
Opened in the fall of 1998, Tavilla Hall is named after Trustee Stephen Tavilla. Located on the rocky rise near the main entrance, Tavilla Hall overlooks beautiful Coy Pond and the surrounding woodlands. It houses 151 upperclassmen in apartment-style units, which include four, five, six, and seven-person apartments.
