Welcome to Southwest Hall
Southwest Hall, completed in 2006, is home to 380 students who will live in 95 four-person suites. Each suite has four single bedrooms, a living room, a dining area with kitchenette, and two bathrooms. There is high speed internet access in every bedroom and elevator access to all floor levels. The entire building is air conditioned and each suite is fully furnished. Each of the six floors has a study room with a computer that can be used for group projects. Other public areas include the main desk, mailroom, lobby, multipurpose room, laundry room, and community room with vending area. Southwest Hall remains open during the official academic year breaks.

Happy April from Southwest Hall!
I hope that everyone had a great Spring Break. It’s beginning to look a lot like spring outside which is nice after the tough winter that we’ve had. As we enter a new month, here are a couple of things to be aware of:
• The Southwest Hall staff and Suite Forum Leadership Team would like to thank all of those who participated in the Southwest Hall Cake Walk last month. Thanks to your donations (both in money and desserts), we were able to raise $500.00 that will be going to Freedom Honor Flight Network, a national program that gives veterans a chance to visit Washington, D.C. on a Tour of Honor to see the war memorials.
• We just got back from Spring Break and now April Break is almost here! It will begin Thursday, April 17th at 6pm and will go into Sunday, April 20th at 5pm. Southwest Hall residents are allowed to stay in the hall during that time at no additional cost but keep in mind that front desk hours as well as staffing will be limited. There will be a signup sheet at the front desk within the next week if you want to stay around during that time. This is a good time to do some spring cleaning to get your suite organized as well as taking belongings that are not being used either home or donating them.
• If you are returning to Southwest Hall next year, and would like to keep your belongings in your bedroom over the summer, you may want to participate in our brand new summer storage program. All of the information about this program can be found by clicking HERE.
• Lastly, Southwest Hall and Porter Hall are working together to bring to you a Friday Night Club event that will make you want to grab your dress clothes and dancing shoes. On Friday, April 25th from 9pm-11pm in Velzy Commons, we will be host a Great Gatsby-themed spring formal. Velzy Commons will be transformed into the Roaring 20s with themed decorations, photo opportunities, and music. We hope that you are able to attend!
If there are any questions about the above announcements, or anything else, please feel free to contact me.
Have a good April!
