Inside The Halls

Columbia Hall is a coed residence hall in the north area of campus. Its name was retained from the old Columbia Hotel which the university purchased to use as a residence hall in the years of rapid enrollment during the late 1960's.

Columbia Hall houses 486 students in suite-style arrangements throughout 11 floors. Building amenities include a kitchen and a study on each floor, as well as a wellness center on the lower level. Home to a Student Success Center satellite office, Columbia Hall is close to many academic buildings.
