Upcoming Changes to Douglas Keen Hall

HRL is excited to announce that due to the increased demand for female housing, the south tower of Douglas Keen Hall will be converted to female housing, effective Fall 2014. Douglas Keen lends itself to this because the building has two separate towers connected by a common lobby. Each tower will be treated as single gender: South Tower - female, North Tower - male.
