Tommie North exterior

Tommie North Residence Hall

Built in 2020, Tommie North ushered in a new style of residence halls, with a focus on the needs of first year students - grouping students into clusters and pods and encouraging interaction beyond a roommate. The entire Hall was built to support both serious study (multiple study spaces plus print stations) and serious fun, with a game room, multiple lounges, and social kitchen areas.

The building forms the boundary for the northeast corner of campus and houses the Northsider dining hall, the Corner Market convenience store, and classroom spaces, all on the first floor below the living area. There is underground parking below the building and a tunnel connects Tommie North with Ireland Residence Hall and the Iversen Center for Faith.
