Welcome to Shippee Hall

Shippee Hall is located across from Mirror Lake, across the street from the School of Fine Arts and just a block away from the newly built Mansfield Downtown establishment. Shippee is a short walking distance away from the Buckley dining hall.  All incoming first year Honors students are assigned to Buckley and Shippee Hall.  Shippee currently houses 296 residents, and the rooms are broken down to 145 doubles. Some rooms share a common bathroom while those in the "C section" have a private bathroom and a different pricing rate than the traditional doubles. Shippee also has a basic community kitchen equipped with a stove and microwave located on every floor.

Shippee is primarily a first-year and second-year area on campus.  These areas are designed to help students adjust to college life and transition to community style living.  Students will be assigned to these areas with other first-year students as roommates, or with second year students as roommates who are familiar with these areas and can serve as resources and mentors. All Shippee Hall residents have access to Buckley Hall in order to have access to the Honors Program Office, located on the first floor of Buckley Hall.

Shippee and Buckley create one community. The two communities participate in the Honors Olympics in September and the Block Party in April. The majority of residents in this area are in the Honors program and there are a large number of events that take place in both Buckley and Shippee; many of them are honors events. Most residents are happy to be in this community and enjoy the camaraderie between the buildings and the relationships that are built.
