Proudly standing as a LEED Gold Certified building, Eagle Hall is different from our other on-campus housing options. It is divided into two residence halls: Eagle Gray and Eagle Maroon. Each hall has about 350 students and is designed as a semi-suite style building. You share a room with two roommates and an adjoining bathroom with another room. Eagle Hall has a limited number of first year students plus a combination of upper class, transfer and international students on floors mixed by gender. For 2019-20, there will be a community of transfer students.

Eagle Hall is located right next to Whitney Dining Center and the Recreational Eagle Center (REC). It is on the northwest side of campus on La Crosse Street.

Residents interested in Gender Inclusive Housing (GIH) can indicate that they would like to live in an Eagle suite.  Learn more about GIH here.

Eagle Hall rooms are extended housing. The rooms accommodate three students due to the demand for on-campus living. Students who live in an Eagle room with two other people have their normal room rate reduced. If an Eagle room has only 2 people in it, the housing rate will be adjusted. This will be prorated based on the date of the occupancy change. Check here for specific room rates.

Transfer Student Community expanding section

The Eagle Hall Transfer Student Community offers transfer students a unique living experience. Designed and proposed by current transfer students, and with transfer students in mind, we are excited to offer this living opportunity for our transfer students. With all transfer students, the community is built to help transfer students adjust to a new university and be able to connect based on their shared experiences. The Resident Assistant (RA) of the community is also a transfer student, who is able to guide other transfer students through adjusting to a new campus and community. The events of this community are geared toward building connections between residents and to campus offices with resources for transfer students. Come live in a great community with students who share your experiences!
