Hamsini House

Located in House 5 on Fraternity Row, Hamsini is a living-learning community open to all students who are interested in exploring matters related to the African diaspora.

Established in 2018, Hamsini is home to 25 upperclassmen. Students who may have an interest in living in the community should contact the Office of Residential Life.   

The house was named Hamsini, which means 50 in Swahili, in honor of members of the Association of Black Collegians who, 50 years ago, called upon the university to increase the number of black students and faculty, create a black studies program and provide a space for black students to come together.
