West Residence Halls

Polk Street Residence (PSR)

Polk Street Residence (PSR) is a co-ed building that was renovated in 2001 to create small clusters on each floor, with two rooms sharing a private bathroom. The hall houses about 130 students. The small number of residents per floor--25--allows for added quiet and privacy as well as small, vibrant communities. Each floor has five single rooms, one triple room, nine double rooms, and one RA room. The second floor houses a Faculty in Residence, a Campus Housing staff member and several meeting rooms. PSR is for upperclass undergraduate and graduate students. Residents in PSR are not required to have a meal plan. Gender neutral housing is available in this building.
