East Hall room

East Hall's 49 rooms have a variety of sizes and layouts, offering suite style rooms where two students share adjoining spaces (second floor) and true single rooms (3rd and 4th floors.)

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.
