  • + amount for off-campus (with family) room, board and other expenses * # of students living off-campus with family
  • + amount for off-campus (not with family) room, board and other expenses * # of students living off-campus not with family)

What Students Are Saying

3.85 Average Rating
Hanover is more than a college, it's a community. I've never felt so accepted and welcomed in such a great environment. I feel like I wouldn't be the same person without my liberal arts education I've received here.
Shana from Hanover, IN
Hanover has been the best choice I have ever made. It is a small college that is big on experience! Studying on this beautiful campus has been an honor for me.
Jennefer from Flat Rock, IN
Hanover College is not only a college but a place of growth and change. In my first year of Hanover I enhanced my intellectual abilities and I grew as an individual. Hanover is challenging but without the challenge it would be impossible to grow as a person.
Norah from Fairfield, OH
