Ohlson House

One of our most unique buildings, Ohlson House started as a Chicago apartment building. North Park has converted it to an all-female residence hall, with rooms that are separated by winding hallways and hidden cubbys. Privacy is a given, but Ohlson House women work hard to create a strong sense of community and support for one another—including plenty of fun all-hall activities.
