South Hall Housing

South Hall is an apartment-style complex, located on the south edge of campus. It has a view of the Olympic Mountains to the west and Mount Rainier to the east. South Hall provides many amenities to students such as full kitchens in all apartments, close proximity to campus, WiFi available throughout the building, and a centralized laundry room. All South Hall apartments are furnished with dining room furniture and a “soft seat”, and each bedroom includes a bed, desk with chair, dresser, shelves, mirror, and closet.

There are a variety of apartments available, including studios, two-bedroom apartments, two-bedroom townhouses, four-bedroom apartments and a five-bedroom townhouse. If you would like more information on the different apartment options go here. Also, a benefit to living on campus is that students receive only one bill per semester which covers electricity, water, wireless internet, and cable with over 100 channels (including HD). In addition, the residence hall provides students a safe and secure environment with card access only entries and regular Campus Safety patrols.

South Hall boasts a main lounge with a big screen TV and lots of seating for formal and informal get-togethers. The main lounge opens onto a courtyard, which provides a large gathering area for the annual South BBQ and other events. South Hall also has smaller lounges and study rooms which encourage small group interaction. This hall is a great option for students who want the convenience of living on campus but would like the option of apartment style living.
