Three wings with one common lobby. Bolt is a male hall, Heyns is a female hall, and Timmer is home to the Timmer Studio Apartments for upperclassmen. The lobby connects Bolts and Heyns, with Timmer connected to Heyns.
Bolt & Heyns - 1970, Timmer - 1981
Jacab Bolt (1875-1967) Christina Bolt (1876-1959): Served as Christian Reformed missionaries to the Navaho people in Crown Point, New Mexico, for 25 years.
Garrett Heyns (1891-1969): Gained national recognition for his dedication to improving prisons in Michigan and Washington. He received Calvin's first distinguished alumni award in 1966.
Johanna Timmer (1901-1978): In 1927, she became the first woman to join Calvin's faculty, serving as Dean of Women and as an English teacher.
BHT is closest to the academic buildings (great for late-sleepers). Timmer has traditionally been a women's wing, but was re-purposed for upperclassmen "studio apartments" in 2010.
