Best Residence Halls

First Place — Centennial Courts

If you’re looking for a dorm that is close to apartment style living, the Centennial Courts are your best bet.

“I think students enjoy living in the Centennial Courts, because it’s a nice balance between student engagement and millennial students’ desire to have privacy,” said David Haas, the residence hall director for Centennial Courts C and D.

With a private bathroom and air conditioned rooms, it definitely feels like luxury living for a college campus. Each Centennial Court includes study rooms and lounges on every floor as well as an quiet atmosphere that is perfect for students.

Second Place — Eastway

Most students fondly remember their times in Eastway, because it is one of the most popular freshman dorms on campus.

Eastway is broken up into four residential halls including Fletcher, Manchester, Allyn and Clark. These halls include lounges equipped with pool tables, foosball tables and a television.  

There’s even a bowling alley and arcade on the first floor right next to the common area, which features a fireplace and multiple televisions.

The best part? The dining hall upstairs and a marketplace downstairs, so one never has to leave the hall to get some food.

Third Place — Tri-Towers

Housing more than 1,000 students, Tri-Towers is a diverse living space that includes three residence halls including Leebrick, Koonce, and Wright.

With a popular hangout spot in the rotunda, students have the opportunity to have a social and interactive living environment.

Tri-Towers also holds the only 24-hour dining option on campus. At Rosie’s, you can enjoy some fries and a shake at any time of day — especially handy after a night out.
