ABOUT THE COMMUNITY
Anderson Hall houses students in 54 double rooms. The hall is home to two special interest floors: the Substance-Free lifestyle floor on the fifth floor, and the Students Entering Nursing, Science and Engineering, or SENSE, Living Learning Community on the third floor. The fourth floor is general housing.
There is a large common lounge on the second floor with a Ping-Pong table, flat screen television and lots of seating. Smaller lounges on the third and fifth floors have televisions and seating, and the hall features a full kitchen that both Anderson and Woodward residents can use. The hall has vending machines conveniently located in the lobby. The floors are mixed gender.
Every room has a built-in closet, desk and chair, dresser, and bed for each occupant and a room micro-fridge. Each room also has cable tv and high speed internet hookups.
TAKE A 360º TOUR- Under Construction
The hall has hosted floor dinners, apple picking trips, pumpkin carving, a Halloween Dance, movie nights, Ultimate Frisbee competitions, and A & W Bucks for program participation and “good community” members which can be used to purchase items at an auction. There is also a fund-raising competition between Anderson and Woodward, with money donated to the winning hall's charity of choice, and the winning hall receiving a pizza party.
Built as a men’s dormitory in 1963, this was named for Hayden L.V. Anderson, an alumnus who taught at Gorham for many years, and went on the serve as Director of Professional Services for the Maine Department of Education.
Anderson is a stones throw from the Brooks Student Center/dining hall, the Costello Sports Complex, the Library, and campus transportation.

It is a great place to live because it is small, friendly, and a tight-knit community.
