Burgh Hall

Burgh Hall is the social residence hall; students often leave their doors open so they can pop in and out of their friends’ rooms for games, studying, movie nights, or just hanging out. Students from across campus tend to congregate in Burgh: the lobby is a comfortable hangout spot, as are Burghatory (study and game rooms) and Java Haus (student-run, late-night snack shop) in the basement.
