Why Students Love It Here

"I love the location of Allen Hall: it’s within a 5-minute walk of the Quad, and is close to residential neighborhoods. And it’s great to take classes in the basement of my hall! The atmosphere of Allen is unique. There are so many opportunities for bonding experiences and it’s easy to make friends and connections."

- Audrey

"Allen Hall is a second home to me. The people, programs, and perks are so helpful and fun, it was a no-brainer that I would choose to live here another year. Allen Hall set me up for a freshman year of success, and I can't wait to see what is in store for next year!"

- Erin

"I chose to stay at Allen Hall as a sophomore because of all of the amazing opportunities available to me. There are so many activities and events that would not be available to me anywhere else."
