Welcome to Anderson

Hello, and welcome to Anderson Hall! The Resident Director Team Mikaela, Ethan, and Rachel are very excited to work with a vibrant community of first-year students. Here in Anderson there are general population students, the University College Living-Learning Community, and some of our transfer population. Anderson is one of the largest residence halls on campus, housing 768 beds on six floors. There are two wings per floor, north and south, which have two Resident Assistants (RA) each, totaling four student staff on each floor. Additionally, Anderson is home to the University College program that engages students outside of the classroom setting by offering weekly excursions into D.C. lead by a Program Associate (PA). With the numerous social and study spaces available throughout the building, Anderson is the perfect place for you or your student to live and learn. Feel free to reach out to Mikaela (Floors Terrace-3) or Ethan (Floors 4-6) if you need any assistance!
