About Southwest Hall

  • Co-ed Residence Hall
  • Upperclassmen
  • Honors Housing

Southwest Hall was originally constructed in 1957 as two separate halls but was combined in 2002 to become one. Southwest houses 300 upper class men and women on three floors and is located in the center of campus on the Charles Keown Plaza. Southwest Hall underwent renovations in 2017 that included a new lobby, community and study rooms, large kitchens, and theater rooms.

The main Housing & Residence Life office is located in the ground level of Southwest Hall. The entrance to the office is located across from Minton Hall and the Downing Student Union. 

This hall closes during Thanksgiving, Winter, and Spring breaks. If you need to stay on campus during those times, please choose a residence hall that offers extending living and list "extended living" as your most important preference on your application.
