Whitman College

Whitman College

Whitman College is named after Meg Whitman, Class of 1977, one of the world’s preeminent business leaders. About 500 undergraduates live in seven residence halls built in the Collegiate Gothic style.

Inaugurated in the fall of 2007, Whitman College is forging new traditions to further strengthen the deep sense of community that characterizes educational life at Princeton.

Dining at Whitman College

As a resident of Whitman College, you will likely take most of your meals in Community Hall in the Whitman Quad. You may, however, choose to eat in any of the other Residential College dining rooms when it is more convenient or if you want to join friends there.
