Residence Halls

Harrill Hall

Originally built in 1971, Harrill Hall underwent a major renovation during the 2011-2012 school year. This renovation established modern suites of rooms for 354 men and women, with one bath shared between every two rooms and a sink located in each room. Kitchenettes and living and gathering spaces were created on each floor, as well as a 6,000-square-foot addition featuring an upscale meeting venue.

Of special note, the renovation afforded an energy efficient building with such features as a geothermal heating andair-conditioning system that harnesses the earth’s energy by transferring heat absorbed by the earth via geothermal wells to heat the building, heat water for showers and power the air-conditioning system.

Additionally, a basketball court behind the building is available for student use.

Room features: Two loftable XL twin beds; two moveable combination wardrobes/dressers; two moveable desks; two desk chairs; two Ethernet ports with high speed Internet connection; one cable TV jack; horizontal blinds.
