Residence Hall Communities

Anderson, Centennial, and Letts are considered part of the South Campus. All three halls are connected and part of the same large complex. The South Campus has a shuttle stop which takes residents to/from the North Campus and Metro Station. The South Campus is known for the lively community and camaraderie among the residents. This is due mainly to the large amount of residents that are housed in the complex and the availability of a central sitting area in the LA Quad.

Hughes, Leonard, McDowell, Nebraska, and Cassell are considered part of the North Campus. These halls are connected only by common lounges with restricted access. The North Campus has a shuttle stop which takes residents to/from the South Campus, Law School, and Metro Station. The North Campus is known for being a tight-knit community with camaraderie centering around the individual building environment and identity.

Each of the links below provides additional information about the specific residence hall community and each population housed there. There will be a place on the application to preference any of these halls or communities, but it would be a good idea to remember to mention your interest in your individual interview as well.
