Hall Councils

Residence Hall Councils are created within each residential living area. They participate in providing programs for residents as well as giving guidance to Housing and  Residence Life regarding needs in each particular residence hall and in living areas across campus. Many initiatives have recently been created by the various Hall Councils. These include:

  • Input on Mills Hall bathroom renovations
  • Room furniture selection at the Ridges
  • Exterior improvements at Mills, Founders, and Governors Hall
  • Security camera and access control additional locations

The residence halls exist to provide you, the resident, the best living experience possible. Because of that, your voice is important and we consider your opinions seriously. If you would like to be a part of positive changes and additions to the residence halls, participating in Hall Councils could be for you.
