Also known as KHvR, this residence hall complex is comprised of three wings—Kalsbeek is traditionally a female hall, Huizenga a male hall, and van Reken (connected to Kalsbeek) houses both men and women who are part of Calvin’s three unique living-learning communities. All floors are connected with shared common lobbies, including the shared basement level, and two elevators make the entire complex accessible.
