Anderson Hall is known as “that big round building on campus” with rooms uniquely shaped like pieces of a pie. Because the hallways never end (they’re circles!), Anderson attracts students who love to stop by their neighbors’ rooms just to say hi, and the residence hall has a busy social calendar.
Anderson Hall’s round shape makes it one of the most distinct buildings on North Park’s campus.
Anderson Hall was renovated in summer 2012, creating more comfortable common spaces for student use.
A quiet study room on the first floor includes large tables, computers, and a printer.
A community kitchen is available on the first floor for all residents’ use. This floor also has vending machines and a dispenser for ice and water.
All rooms come furnished with beds, mattresses, desks, chairs, dressers, and built-in closets with overhead storage. Stackable furniture allows you to maximize your space for comfort and add your own style.
Anderson rooms are a perfect backdrop for creative decorating, and built-in closets and dressers help students stay organized.
