Residence Life and Housing

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.

Burgh Hall

Burgh Hall is on the south side of campus near Anderson Hall, Magnuson Campus Center, and many apartments and houses.


The Burgh Hall lobby is a popular hangout spot for students from all over campus.


Burgh’s basement is affectionately known as Burghatory, and is home to a study room and a rec room with pool and ping pong tables.

Shared Kitchen

A shared kitchen and vending machines are also available for residents’ use.

TV Lounge

The first floor of Burgh Hall includes a TV lounge and lots of comfortable seating.

Living Floors

Burgh’s living floors make it convenient for residents to get to know their neighbors.

Furnished Rooms

Burgh rooms are equipped with stackable and movable furniture so residents can create the perfect arrangements for their needs. Along with beds and closets, every Burgh room is furnished with desks and chairs that are movable so you can maximize your space.

Co-ed Living

One floor in Burgh is reserved for women, mostly freshmen and sophomores. (The first floor is divided by the lobby, with one wing for men and one for women.)

Lots of Natural Light
