East Hall

East Hall room

East Hall is unique in that each of its 49 rooms are all different in size and layout, providing for a more suite-style, customized feel than a traditional residence hall room. Each room is also wired for internet and cable connections.

East Hall is a warm and inviting home to upperclass students who wish to live in a responsible living environment, in which students are given the freedom to discuss and implement their own policies regarding quiet hours and intervisitation. Please contact the Center for Campus Life at 605-274-5215 with questions.
