Front of White Hall

James White Hall is a 4-story, suite style building housing first-year students.  White Hall houses approximately 570 students in studio or 2-bedroom suites that are assigned 2 or 4-persons respectively.  There are no single spaces in the building - everyone has a roommate.  Each studio or 2-bedroom suite has its own bathroom for its occupants to share.  All spaces are heated and air conditioned, and students have controls in the room to raise or lower the temperature within a set range.

The building features multiple lounge and study spaces on each floor for group gatherings and extra study space.  Also included throughout the building are laundry rooms, bike rooms, and TV/game spaces.  A community kitchen and vending machines are also located on the first floor.
