Located on the East side of campus between White and Laux Hall, Sanford Hall is a coed residence hall housing 250 residents including both first year and upperclass students. Hall Staff in Sanford Hall find discipline to be nary a problem. They spend the majority of their time getting to know the students, helping plan activities, and listening to students' problems.
Sanford Hall is the only traditional style residence hall on campus where men and women live as neighbors. There are two separate bathrooms on each floor. Sanford has the rather unique distinction of having served exclusively men followed by only women and finally going coeducational. Through it all those who have lived in the corridors of Sanford have no doubt grown through their experience.
Sanford Hall is home to the Service Learning Community (SLC). The SLC is a group of residents all living in the same wing together committed to enhancing their learning experience through service. SLC residents participate in service projects and receive academic credit working with faculty in the political science department.
In September of 1967, Sanford Hall was ushered into the university's residence hall system. The building was named for Albert Sanford who headed the history department at the University for 28 years.
