The Commons

The Commons

The Commons is seven traditional-style residence halls housing about 500 first-year students located in the center of campus. Traditional style means the rooms on the floor/wing share a community bathroom (with the same gender). Most rooms are double occupancy, but a few single rooms are available. Hanover Hall is located within The Commons and features a community kitchen, lounge, study space, and classrooms. The Commons are home to our Honors CollegeSchar School of Policy and Government, and Well-Being Residential Learning Communities.
