LaFerla Hall

LaFerla Hall opened Fall 2013 and is located adjacent to Otto and Della Seabaugh Polytechnic Building, Robert A. Dempster Hall and Marvin Rosengarten Athletic Complex. LaFerla Hall is a suite style community with double occupancy student rooms connected by a shared entrance and bathroom. The residence hall has multiple small living rooms throughout the building, a large game room/kitchenette, laundry room, and multiple study lounges on each floor.

In addition to the unique room layout, LaFerla Hall is home to many of the Residential Learning Communities. The student population of LaFerla Hall is a mix of new and returning students. Most students in our learning communities are new students, with some upper level students who were previous members of the learning community remaining on the floor to help support the program.
