Owen Hall

Owen Hall

River Trail Neighborhood

Owen Hall is a favorite to both underclassmen and graduate students. All rooms in Owen Hall are single rooms. The hall is home to a Sparty’s Refresh and the allergen-free Thrive dining hall. Students living in Owen Hall have the option to choose a dining plan, but this is not required.

Fun fact: 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.
