Residence Hall

Shinn Hall houses approximately 130 upper division residents on three residential floors. Each floor has primarily double occupancy rooms, a shared restroom, a shared coffee bar on the first floor, and a shared study space on the third floor. The facility provides elevator access to all floors, building wide air-conditioning, and internet services in each room. A full kitchen is located on each floor, and laundry facilities can be found on each floor.

Shinn Hall was completed in 2014 and was the highest LEED residence hall in the world. After the competition of construction, more than 89% of the project’s waste was recycled which benefited local communities and reduced the building’s carbon footprint.

Shinn Hall gives a homey feel with patios on each side of the building and a covered porch and lush outdoor green space on multiple sides of the building. The hall is also in great proximity to main campus buildings - a 3-5 minute walk to the Alumni, Woods Penn and Fairchild and Marketing Buildings. The hall is also just steps away from the College Square providing easy access to Boone Tavern, the college Visitor Center & Shop, Log House Craft Gallery and more.

A live in professional staff member is on sight at this location to help meet the needs of each resident and promote and participate in the thriving hall community.
