Inside The Halls

Bates West, built in 1974, is located behind the Blatt PE Center in the south area of campus. Bates West was the university's first coed residence hall and offers convenient parking to residents in the adjacent lot.

This coed apartment-style residence hall houses 387 students in two-bedroom apartments. Each apartment has four residents and includes a bathroom, living room and full kitchen. The residents of Bates West also enjoy the all-you-can-eat Bates Diner located next door.
