Cheney Hall is a unique residence hall with 110 residents (reserved for returning students). The entire hall operates as a single community, which differs from the way floor communities often develop in the Towers area. Cheney Hall has a rich tradition of student involvement in hall activities, international programs, and artistic pursuits. Because of the high demand for Cheney rooms, this residence hall is reserved for returning students.

Conveniently located at the middle of campus, Cheney offers easy access to Academic, Brandt, Carnahan, Parker, Scully, and Dempster buildings.
