By bringing a diverse group of students together in a single building, DCC creates the conditions for innovative problem solving and dynamic learning.

Prince Frederick Hall is where DCC lives and learns. It’s a new dorm and it’s amazing! Prince Frederick opened in Fall 2014 and houses 462 students in a combination of singles, doubles and four-person semi-suites. First year students are typically housed in traditional double rooms, and our sophomores live in four-person semi-suites. A small number of single and double rooms with private baths are available on each floor. All student rooms have space for a personal microwave and a refrigerator up to 3.6 cubic feet in size.

The building features an open lobby with entrances from both the south and north as well as a first floor and ground floor wing featuring small and large group meeting spaces for building events and living learning program classes.
