Our Residence Halls
Converse Hall, a residence hall opened in 1935, was originally known as the Senior Hall. It was later renamed to honor former registrar, professor and math department chair, Henry A. Converse. The building was renovated in 2001.
Converse reflects a traditional design of long open hallways with rooms on either side of the main corridor. Most rooms are arranged in suites with two students to a room and two rooms sharing a bath. Residents are responsible for maintaining the cleanliness of their bathroom.
Converse Hall also has a kitchen with a microwave oven, vending services, carpeted study lounges, TV lounge, and laundry facilities. Wireless internet access is available near the basement study lounge.
