Nyland Nyland Double

Nyland Hall

Dedicated in 2003 in honor of David Nyland, Nyland Hall is a traditional, community style residence hall. Approximately 130 residents call the building home, with the room accommodations including doubles, triples, and quads. Each floor has a laundry room, a kitchen, and common lounge spaces for the residents to cook, study, or play late night ping-pong or pool. Nyland houses primarily first-year students and sophomores, with some juniors and seniors. Nyland residents take pride in their hall identity and friendly rivalry with other residence halls on The Hill, developing a diverse community in which anyone can feel both welcomed and challenged.

Occupancy: Approximately 130 residents
