Whistler, a first-year, says that while T-Stad, as it’s known on campus, wasn’t his first choice, he is very glad that’s where he ended up. What’s not to like?

It’s the largest residence hall on campus, both in size and number of students, with about 360 residents. Whistler says there’s enough variety of students that it quickly becomes a mini-community you can count on.

“It’s a very exciting hall to be in,” said Whistler, who is considering majoring in physics. “There are lots of different types of people there, and its easy to meet friends of friends. There’s lots of flexibility, and everyone chills with everyone else.”

Other cool things about Tingelstad:  Smaller “house” communities of 90 residents are formed by balconies with spiral staircases that join together two floors and open into spacious lounges and kitchens, where residents enjoy hanging out with one another. It is located directly across the street from the only fenced and gated parking lot on campus.

  • The 9 floors also have elevator access – the uber dedicated can climb the stairs
  • There are double and triple rooms available
  • The laundry room is centralized
  • WiFi available throughout the building
  • A games room is available to the residents
  • Centralized study rooms
  • Annual Event: Varies by yearly theme!
