University Place

University Place is a brand new three-story residence hall that houses 200 first time freshmen students and 100 upperclassmen. This building offers co-ed suite style living with semi-private restrooms, several game rooms, formal lounges, a reception area and multiple laundry rooms. If you are looking for social opportunities in the building, there are many chances to get to know other students by attending the numerous resident assistant (RA) events or hall council events. Some of these fun events include: tricycle races for alcohol awareness, ping pong tournaments, spa nights, presidential election debates and football watch parties. These are great opportunities for you to grab your friends and have a blast without leaving the comfort of your own home.

The staff

Fourteen staff members live in University Place. Each wing has one resident assistant (RA), a carefully selected and specially trained student with the experience and knowledge to help you get acclimated to the hall and university life. The first and second floors are where you will find four peer advisors (PA), an equally carefully selected and specially trained student that provides you with activities that help enrich your experience at Henderson State University. These PAs also provide one-on-one feedback to improve your study skills, class attendance and involvement with the university.  On the first floor, in the north wing of the building, you will also find your Area Coordinator’s apartment. The Area Coordinator is there to provide any additional help you may need and is responsible for the day-to-day management of the building.

Themed housing

The first and second floors of University Place are home to the First Year Experience (FYE) themed community. This community helps freshmen adjust to college life by introducing them to a wide range of student organizations, events, activities, majors and careers. It provides opportunities for our freshmen to discover and define specific interests and abilities.  The FYE themed community provides the opportunity to live with other first time freshmen with similar interests.
