Located in the Heart of Campus
As visitors enter campus from University Boulevard near the Ralph Wright Natatorium and proceed past the Houchen's Building, they will approach NRH2022. Prospective students and their families will be able to view the new facility as they arrive on campus for tours with the Office of Admissions. As with residents of NRH2021, those who choose to stay in NRH2022 will find themselves immersed in the heart of campus. Located directly adjacent to the Student Activities Center (SAC) and just a minute's walk from the Red Barn, NRH2022 will place first-year students in proximity to restaurants, cafes such as Starbucks, a campus movie theater, the university bookstore, and several classes as well as offices.
