Roberson Hall - Coming 2011!
This state-of-the-art 47,000-square-foot residence hall will have 90 single-occupancy rooms (or a maximum capacity of 130 students) and will be ready next fall.
Constructed in 1975, Drum Hall provides an energetic atmosphere for its 70 residents to live and form relationships. Located on the main residential quad on campus, Drum Hall consists of three floors of residential living space (the top two floors are for women, and the lowest residential floor is for men). Each floor is separated by a lobby with couches, tables, and flat-screen televisions equipped with cable. The ground floor contains a main lobby area with a flat screen television, kitchen, and laundry room.
Drum Hall is known for its great location close to the dining hall, Student Activity Center and the Aaron Academic building, and view of the residential quad. Each room has its own air conditioning and heating unit.
Known for its long history, tradition, sisterhood, and upbeat residents, Jackson Hall is often a top choice for incoming female students. Jackson Hall is located on main campus, facing the central quad, and has resident parking directly behind. In this 98 bed-capacity residence hall, room sizes range from small singles to a large triple-occupancy room. Each room is equipped with essential furniture and adjustable loft beds, most of which can be bunked or unbunked, depending on space and resident preference. The residence hall is composed of three floors for residents and is sectioned into four “halls,” each of which is overseen by a Resident Assistant.
Lobby areas are located throughout the building. The main and largest lobby sits at ground level and serves as the main entrance to Jackson Hall. Another smaller lobby, lovingly nicknamed “The Max,” has full kitchen access and sits a floor below the main lobby. Other lobbies and sitting areas are located throughout the building, providing ideal lounge and study space. Students also enjoy high-speed Internet access, including wireless, and an in-house laundry facility.
King Street is an all-female, upperclassmen residence hall. Residents in this dorm enjoy suite-style rooms with no curfew. The two rooms in each suite are connected by a private bath, usually shared by four residents. Students often take advantage of King Street as a great place to study, since it is known for its quiet atmosphere. In order to live in this location, residents must meet specific requirements, as outlined in the Residence Life Guide.
Located just a short walk away from main campus, this 30-plus capacity residence hall has two floors, each with a lobby, mini-kitchen area and a laundry facility. Both lobbies are equipped with comfortable seating, tables, and flat-screen TVs with cable access. Students also have access to high-speed Internet, including wireless access.
Melton Hall is an all-male, upperclassmen residence hall, known for its easygoing atmosphere and having no curfew. Melton Hall has over 30 beds and offers suite-style living, usually with two students per room, four per suite, and a bathroom between the two rooms.
Melton Hall provides two lobby areas – one on each floor – and each lobby serves as a highly communal area, since they are located just outside the resident rooms. Even with comfortable seating, cable TVs, and a fun atmosphere in the lobbies, this residence hall still provides plenty of quiet space for study. Resident requirements are outlined in the Residence Life Guide.
Wellons Hall, constructed from 1958 to 1959, has three floors of men’s rooms and houses approximately 95 male students. Known for its tight-knit community and close proximity to central campus, the residential male students often desire to live in Wellons Hall for longer than two years instead of making the transition to Melton Hall or Terrace.
Wellons offers central heating and air, high-speed Internet, a comfortable lobby with cable television, a laundry room, kitchen, and fully furnished rooms.
The Terrace units house upperclassmen male and female students in separate areas. This is known as a largely academic community and is able to provide 20 students with a more private, quiet setting for studying. The students in the Terrace units are known for their involvement in college leadership activities.
The units hold up to 10 people and are located on the outer edge of campus, very close to the soccer field and LifeSprings. Each unit has a large lobby with cable television, central heating and air, a kitchen, laundry capabilities, and wireless Internet access.
Rental property is available on and around campus for married and nontraditional students. For more information please contact Director of Campus Operations Ron McCullar.
