In Halsell Hall, students are not assigned to rooms or suites by gender. This allows our residents to room with anyone of any gender identity or gender expression. This living environment can accommodate students who desire to live with friends or family, as well as all gender identities including man, woman and transgender, among many others.
Halsell offers Second Year and Above, which features building amenities and a community experience designed with the second year and above student in mind.
