East and West Halls

East and West halls are three-story residence halls that house 174 students each. These buildings offer co-ed, suite-style living with semi-private restrooms, a game room, formal lounge, reception area and multiple laundry rooms. If you are looking for social opportunities in the building, there are many opportunities to get to know other students by attending the numerous RA programs or hall council events. Some of these fun events include: 3-on-3 basketball, decorating flower pots, tie-dye and self defense. These are great opportunities for you to grab your friends and have a blast without leaving the comfort of your own home.

Your new home

When you arrive you will find that your room is furnished with extra-long twin beds, a walk-in wardrobe closet, two dressers, a bookshelf, two desks, desk chairs, window blind, cable TV connection, local phone service (upon request) and a data port for Internet connection. Depending the style of you and your roommate, you will have the option of bunking your beds or moving around the desks and dressers, to make room for any extra furniture you may want to bring.

The staff

There are at least ten university staff members that live in East and West Halls, five per building. Each floor has a resident assistant (RA), a specially selected and trained student with the experience and knowledge to help you get acclimated to the hall and university life. On the first floor of East and West, you will also find a peer advisor (PA) and your hall director’s apartment. The hall director is there to provide any additional help you may need and is responsible for the day-to-day management of the building.
