Welcome to Cottingham Hall

Cottingham Hall is the campus’ smallest residence hall, housing only 90 residents. Cottingham residents have two community bathrooms on each floor and a first floor kitchen. Residents can often be found studying or watching television together in the lounge. Cottingham Hall is located on the west side of campus, near Mitchell Hall. Residents enjoy the fact that Cottingham is our only hall that utilizes window units, which gives the students greater autonomy in determining their preferred temperature. All furniture in the rooms can be moved, which enables the residents to create a home that is unique for their needs. Each room has two built-in closets as well as one moveable wardrobe, which students often share for storage or utilize as a pantry. Cottingham Hall is typically the hall designated for overflow, should our housing spaces become full for Fall quarter. Residents may be assigned a temporary third roommate for the first several weeks of classes during Fall quarter until housing occupancy in halls are completed and students can be moved into more permanent housing, as becomes available.
