No meeting location is more ideal to foster a sense of community and enable a productive event than an institution of higher learning. Young Harris College offers a convenient and centralized campus design that places air-conditioned meeting rooms, auditoriums, dining facilities and residence halls within a comfortable walking distance.
The Appleby Complex, named for 1895 alumnus and trustee Scott B. Appleby, was first occupied in 1961 and is composed of two units: Center and West. Center and West are arranged in two-room suites with a connecting bath. Center has space for 116 students, and West has space for 44 students. Each division has an apartment for a residence life coordinator, a common room and a laundry room.
Enotah Hall is a 62,500-square-foot, three-story residential facility that accommodates 200 students. The hall’s 50 residential suites are each comprised of two double-occupancy rooms with two baths, a living room and a kitchenette. The building contains four soundproof Wenger music practice rooms, study rooms, a 24-hour lobby featuring lounge space and a laundry facility that allows students to check online for available machines and receive a text message when laundry is finished. YHC was awarded LEED Silver Certification for Enotah Hall by the U.S. Green Building Council. Located behind Enotah Hall is an amphitheatre that serves as a versatile space used for plays, lectures, concerts and religious life gatherings.
Hillgrove Hall, completed in the fall of 2002, contains 48 rooms and accommodates 96 students. Each room has its own bathroom. Also within the hall is an apartment for a residence life coordinator, a TV lounge, a computer room and a laundry room.
Rollins Hall, completed in 1986, is named for the late O. Wayne Rollins, who served as a loyal trustee of the College for 21 years prior to his death in 1991. The building includes 11 units and accommodates 88 students. Each unit has four two-person rooms, two baths and a large living room. Also within the hall are guest quarters, an apartment for a residence life coordinator, a common room and a laundry room.
The Towers, which opened in Fall 2013, is a unique housing community for first-year students. Centered near the heart of campus, this LEED-certified facility is made up of three separate buildings connected through a shared central building. The Towers are configured in “pods,” or small communities consisting of students living in different sizes and styles of rooms surrounding a country club-style bath area. The innovative pod concept is a growing trend in residence life nationwide. It provides both living and learning spaces that encourage student interaction and foster a sense of community during formative semesters on campus.
In 2011, Young Harris College opened The Village, a LEED-certified apartment-style housing community for upperclassmen. The furnished apartments in The Village are constructed on a rolling terrain with views of the surrounding mountains and campus athletic facilities. Configured in apartments of four private bedrooms, the complex features 248 beds. Each apartment includes a living area, kitchen, and washer and dryer. The village atmosphere is facilitated by expansive porches, designated areas for grilling and abundant green space surrounding the apartments.
