Centennial Hall is home to approximately 400 first-year students. The building is designed for suite-style living, where two students living in one room share a private bathroom with two students in an adjoining room. Each floor community has a central lounge space with a kitchen, lounge furniture, and television for students to study or socialize with their community. Each floor also has a study lounge used as a quiet study location or a common meeting space for group projects, as well as a laundry room. The building is connected to Anderson Hall, also a first-year hall.

In-hall staff include resident assistants (RAs) and community directors (CDs). The 12 Centennial RAs live throughout the building, acting as peer educators and helping residents transition to university life and connect to their community. The Anderson-Centennial community has three CDs, professional staff members who work with RAs to foster a living-learning environment to bridge the academic and residential experience. A faculty-in-residence, Scott Talan (SOC), works alongside residence life staff to create living-learning opportunities.

In 2014, Centennial Hall won first place for their banner for the Women’s Basketball S’more Spirit Tailgate. Centennial also won "Do it in the Dark," a campus-wide energy saving competition.
