East Campus

Federal Hall on East Campus.

Congressional, Constitution, and Federal halls are home to sophomore students, housing approximately 590 residents, on the University’s newest addition to the campus.

These buildings, located on East Campus, have mostly double rooms with private bathrooms. 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 laundry room. Steps away are Bleeker St. Café, a grab-and-go style food market; and the Don Meyers Technology & Innovation Building, a state-of-the-art facility for scientific research, collaboration, and learning. A fitness center on the first floor of Congressional Hall is open to students.

In-hall staff include Resident Assistants (RAs), an Assistant Community Director (ACD), and a Community Director (CD). East Campus’ RAs live in the buildings, acting as peer educators and helping residents connect to their community. The East Campus community has one CD, a professional staff member who works with RAs to foster a living-learning environment to bridge the academic and residential experience.

Built with sustainability in mind, East Campus aims for LEED Certification with efforts taken to limit the amount of greenhouse gases emitted, produce less waste, and increase energy efficiency.
