Welcome to Cottingham Hall

Cottingham hall opened in Fall 2021 for residency, at the corner of Railroad Avenue and Tech Drive.  This newest phase of student housing provides housing options for both incoming freshmen and returning students.  With a centrally located floor commons in the knuckle of two wings, residents enjoy a space to study, share a meal and build a community.  Separate smaller lounges/study rooms are located on each wing.  The hall has three different room configurations – a suite style option where two students will share a bathroom in their room, a single bedroom option where 6-7 residents will share a community restroom of two showers and two toilets, a private flex bedroom option that will give us a larger single bedroom and a community restroom of two showers and two toilets with 7-14 residents.  The suites will have a shower in the bathroom to share with their roommate. The proximity to the new intramural fields as well as outdoor seating areas will provide opportunities for residents to gather outdoors.
