About Southwest Hall

  • Co-ed Residence Hall
  • Open to Upperclassmen

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. The main Housing & Residence Life office is located in this building across from the Minton Hall entrance.

*This hall closes during Thanksgiving, Winter, and Spring breaks. It does reopen for the Winter Term (View Important Dates). If you need to stay on campus during those times, please apply for Barnes Campbell Hall or Bemis Lawrence Hall and list "extended living" as your most important preference.
