The Shoeboxes


Located on west campus, each residence hall in the Shoeboxes house two students per room with communal baths located on each floor.

Cope, Young, Benet, Sanders and Geer Halls comprise the residential area known as the Shoeboxes. With just one look, it’s easy to see why these long, rectangular shaped buildings earned the nickname “the shoeboxes.” Each residence hall houses approximately 140 first-year students each.
