About The Lodges:
The Lodges comprise four cottage rowhouses. One serves as the office of War News Radio
(Lodge 6), which produces a weekly show that delivers balanced and in-depth reporting, historical perspective, and personal stories on the conflicts in Iraq and Afghanistan. Another houses the Beit Midrash
(Lodge 5), providing a contemplative space for Jewish text study.
The remaining four Lodges provide housing for 16 students in double rooms. Residential life
is a significant part of the Swarthmore experience, with 95 percent of the students living in college housing. All of the College's dorms house a diverse mix of students of different class years. Most first-year students and sophomores live with roommates. During junior and senior years, most students live in single rooms.
