The hall is arranged around two lounges per floor, allowing students to participate in wing-specific programming where they can connect with fellow residents. Floor common areas are also ideal for study groups, practicing presentation, catching up with friends or playing a game of ping pong.

Rooms in O’Connell Hall are 11’ x 15’.  While furniture is originally set with desks, beds, chests of drawers, and moveable wardrobes located on resident’s respective sides of the room, many roommates choose to customize how their room looks by shifting the height of their beds and rearranging the furniture.
