Department of Residential Life

Welcome to Ordal! We’re a big hall, with a big heart and a community that feels like family, and we’re excited you’re interested in being a part of our community!  Ordal is home to both new and returning students as well as the First in the Family Community. The First in the Family community is designed to support first-generation students and assist them in their transition from high school to college.

Hall Features:
Some highlights of Ordal are the bay windows in our rooms, lounges with plenty of space to hang out and study, and kitchens on every floor.

Location, location, location:
Ordal is just steps away from the Admin building, Lagerquist, Mary Baker Russell Music building, and a quick walk to the library!

Planned renovations and improvements include:

  • Card access on new resident room doors – no more room keys!
  • Energy efficient windows
  • Moveable desks and chairs in each room
  • Overhead LED lights in resident rooms – improved lighting and energy efficiency
  • Fresh paint and new flooring
  • Fully renovated bathrooms with increased privacy and heated floors
  • New common area furniture
  • Renovated open floor plan on the first floor kitchen
  • Open floor plan kitchens on 2nd and 3rd floors
  • The lounges on the 3rd floor will incorporate the balcony area and increase the overall square footage
  • Steel plates reinforcing the walls to significantly improve safely should an earthquake happen in the region

Wondering what it’s like to be assigned a roommate? Let Sarah and Anna share their experience with you.
