Belknap Residence Hall

Belknap Residence Hall

The first of two new state-of-the-art residence halls, Belknap Residence Hall will open for first-year students in Fall 2021. Belknap Residence Hall (not yet officially named) will find its home on the site of the parking lot located adjacent to Miller Hall, next to the Red Barn. Its construction will mark a large milestone in our ongoing campus development. 

We love keeping up with our new hall progress, and we want you to join in the excitement, too! Here are a few ways you can stay updated:

Located in the Heart of Campus

As visitors enter campus and approach North Information Center, they will be greeted from a short distance by Belknap Residence Hall. Alumnae, as well, will catch a glimpse of this modern campus addition on their commute to the University Club. Like all residents of our traditional halls, Belknap Residence Hall residents will find themselves immersed in the heart of campus. Located directly adjacent to the Student Activities Center (SAC) and popular social venue the Red Barn, Belknap Residence Hall will place first-year students within a two-minute walking distance of restaurants, cafes such as Starbucks, a campus movie theater, the university bookstore, and several classes as well as offices.

The new hall will be adjoined by our university's new Cultural and Equity Center, which will be accessible to all students via the exterior of the building.

Divided by wing, each floor of this 452-bed residence hall will feature the following:
