Inside The Halls

Centrally located, South Tower is a coed, traditional-style residence hall. The garden behind South Tower commemorates Andrew Moore, acting president of the university from 1908 to 1909 and 1913 to 1914. Mr. Moore was also head of the department of biology and geology in the early 1900's.

Housing 423 students, this 18-story residence hall features a kitchen on each floor and several common spaces on the first floor. It is also close to many dining facilities in the Russell House University Union.
