Originally Hitzeman House was named Hall “G” and opened as a men’s dormitory. Later it was renamed Hitzeman House in honor of Herbert F. Hitzeman Jr.
It is now a suite dormitory for upperclassmen. Hitzeman House is part of the HIG Residential College along with Hurd House and Myers House. The HIG title comes from the original names of the dormitories: halls “G”, “H” and “I.”
