Women's First-Year Residence Hall
All of HSU's first-year women reside in the Anderson Residence Hall, which also includes space for a select group of upper-class women and specially designated spaces for Living-Learning Communities. The rooms are structured for two residents per room with suite baths connecting. The Residential Commons holds a Residential Learning Center (RLC) where classes and dialogues bring the classroom to residence life.
