West Residence Halls

Single Student Residence (SSR)

Single Student Residence (SSR) is an apartment-styled building that houses 530 graduate and professional students as well as undergraduate students who are 21 and older. The sixteenth floor is home to the Nursing Community. Each student has an individual bedroom and shares a kitchenette and bathroom within each unit. In addition, each bedroom has a private telephone line (additional charge for activation). Because this building is mainly for graduate and professional students, the entire building is meant for students to have concentration in their intensive studies.
