Owen Hall

Owen Hall was built in 1960 and is part of the River Trail Neighborhood. The hall is ideal for graduate and professional students and undergraduate upperclassmen who desire a living environment conducive to study, along with the privacy of a single room. Owen Hall is named after Floyd Owen (class of 1902), who provided part of the funding to build the hall. It was the first co-ed hall with male and female students living in their respective wings.
