Pomona College is divided into two sections--north and south campus--not by any specific border, but rather because different class years usually reside in different sections of the campus.

The residence halls of North Campus, including Clark I, Clark III and Clark V—strangely enough, there has never been a Clark II or Clark IV—were originally home to only Pomona’s male students. Today this sought-after real estate around Frary Dining Hall belongs to returning juniors and seniors of both genders. This area is on the north side of Sixth Street and is closer to the other Claremont Colleges as well as some of the shared 5-C resources like Honnold-Mudd Library and Huntley Bookstore.

The residence halls of South Campus--including the venerable Harwood Court and Mudd-Blaisdell Hall, with their beautiful inner courtyards--originally housed only Pomona’s female students. Today they are home to all Pomona first-years and many sophomores, as well as Pomona’s 80-year-old tradition of sponsor groups, co-ed groups of 10 to 20 first-years who live in adjacent rooms along with two sophomore sponsors who help them learn the ropes of campus life. Frank Dining Hall is nearby, as well as Oldenborg Center for Modern Languages and International Relations.
