Fischer Residence Hall

Fischer Hall

Menu

Fischer was built in 1965 and houses 593 freshman and sophomore students. Fully renovated in 2006, this hall contains five floors, with three gender-specific wings on each floor. Each wing is made up of double occupancy rooms and some triple occupancy rooms; most rooms are configured as suites (two rooms adjoined by a common bathroom). As Fischer residents enjoy semi-private suite-style bathrooms, they are responsible for the cleaning and upkeep of this space. Plenty of open space throughout the building allows for larger group activities.
