O'Connell Hall on campus housing

O'Connell Hall

Residents: Students in all years

O’Connell Hall is a three-story residence hall close to Main Hall, Claver Hall, the O’Sullivan Art Gallery, the Copy and Print Center and the University Mail Room. Students in all years of study live in this shared space with great gathering areas and a community kitchen.

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 presentations, catching up with friends or playing a game of ping pong.

This building is staffed by front desk staff throughout the day as well as Resident Assistants and Peer Ministers.
