Hunt Hall

Hunt HallHunt-01_0.jpgHunt Hall is built on traditions, open mindedness, and friendliness. Hunt Hall is also a LEED certified complex and was completely renovated during the summer of 2008.  The students of Hunt create a fun and open environment for all and welcome new ideas and faces to the community.  Some of Hunt Hall’s well known traditions include annual camp outs, hiking trips, the Hunt Hall Talent Show, and the “Arctic Plunge”.  Great, lasting memories and good friends are a result of living in Hunt Hall. Hunt is all co-ed and is building number 73 on the campus map.

NOTE: Due to the type of furniture in Hunt Hall rooms, lofts are not permitted. Loft kits manufactured to fit the beds are available for rent.
