Southwest Hall

Southwest Hall was originally constructed in 1957 as two separate halls but was combined in 2002 to become one. Southwest houses 300 upper class students 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.
