The Suites

Located on the west side of campus just up the hill from Death Valley, these suite-style buildings house four students per suite (two per room) with the two rooms divided by a shared bath. Each five-story building accommodates approximately 300 students. The fully carpeted rooms are arranged in suites with two students per room and two rooms (four students) sharing one bathroom. For the 2017-2018 academic year, Holmes and McCabe Halls are first-year, co-ed residence halls for resident participating in specific LLCs (see below). Beginning the fall of 2018, McCabe Hall will be an Upperclass, co-ed residence hall.

Holmes Hall houses students participating Civics and Service House, CONNECTIONS, and HEHD Living-Learning Communities.
