Also known as NVW, this residence hall complex is comprised of two wings with one common lobby and two shared, connected basements. Noordewier is traditionally a female hall and Vander Werp a male hall.



Named after:

Jacob Noordewier (1839-1938): This early Christian Reformed pastor was a leader in the young denomination; he also helped raise funds for the church's Theological School (now Calvin Seminary).

Douwe Vander Werp (1811-1875): The forerunner of all Calvin faculty, he informally educated young men to be Christian Reformed ministers. Several of his students became the first graduates of the CRC's Theological School (which became Calvin University and Calvin Theological Seminary).
