Welcome to the

Galipatia community

Who We Are


The Hypatia and Galileo (Galipatia) Residential Community provides a living-learning space for engineering students interested in exploring their ability to envision, create, and transform ideas into action.


The dorm Hoge Hall is exclusively home to all Galipatia students and features spaces dedicated to support discovery and host engaging activities. The two communities are Hypatia for female engineers and Galileo for male engineers. Together, students from all engineering disciplines can interact and learn together, fueling their imaginations to design, create, and invent the future.

Some unique benefits for the Galipatia community include:

  • Access to a state of the art design lab in Hoge Hall: Studio 1! The lab includes two 3D printers, a milling machine, laser cutter, drill press and an array of hand and power tools.

  • Studio 2 (right next door to Studio 1), which offers a space for students to work, study and collaborate together with a MediaScape.

  • ​Professional development events hosted by engineering companies that showcase the types of careers and jobs available to you as an engineer. It also gives you the opportunity to start making connections with potential employers right away!

  • Opportunities to make connections at social events with other engineering students. Even if they're outside of your major, you still have a community in which you are surrounded by peers taking the same classes as you!

  • Mentoring support from a large team of upper-class leaders in various engineering majors to foster academic success and help you make connections on campus.

  • The opportunity to become an upper-class leader for Galipatia! Only students who live in the community as first-years can become upper-class leaders later on. The position grants you guaranteed on-campus housing and each UCL works on a specific committee to plan events for the first-years.
