Forrer Hall is a center of activity on the residential side of campus. The four-story building houses approximately 360 women in separate areas for first-year students, sorority members, and unaffiliated upperclass students.
Forrer Hall features spacious community bathrooms, laundry facilities on each floor, a 30-station computer lab, and a chapter room for each of the four sororities on campus. A courtyard in the center of the building connects it to the William T. Young Campus Center and the University dining hall.
Many student services are housed in Forrer Hall, providing easy access to all students. These include the Department of Public Safety, the Office of Community Service, the Office of Health Services, and the Department of Residence Life. Forrer provides three conference rooms that are set aside for 24-hour study, and the front lobby also is designated for study. The back lobby is more social with a big screen television, automated teller machine, and the Residence Life Desk, where all residents receive their mail and packages.
Forrer Hall is both social and conducive to good studies. Residents commonly leave their shower caddies in the hallway next to their doors for the entire year without fear of them being disturbedâ€”an example of the congenial atmosphere. Students actively engage in conversation, floor activities, and community service projects and leave their doors open while studying in their rooms.
The facilities, location, and staff contribute to making Forrer Hall an exciting community to live in.
