Burgh Hall

Burgh Hall is a community which is co-ed by floor and has the reputation of being a very social hall. Students often leave their doors open and find it easy to make friends. Burgh is conveniently located across from the cafeteria, a short walk to Helwig Recreation Center, and near Anderson Hall. Burgh welcomes first- and second-year men and second-year women to its co-ed community.
