Ohlson House

Ohlson House, an all female residence hall, is one of our most unique buildings on campus. No two rooms are exactly alike in Ohlson Hall. With rooms separated by winding hallways, privacy is a given. But Ohlson residents are serious about connecting, and there a strong sense of community in the building.

Ohlson is located on the north edge of North Park's campus, next to Anderson Chapel, the Campus Postal Center, and Health and Counseling Center.
