Ferguson and Munsell Halls

Munsell Hall exterior

Fondly known as "Funsell," Ferguson Hall and Munsell Hall are seven-story, residence halls which foster a vibrant, close-knit community. With several unique traditions and continuous social programs, Funsell is home to the first-year students.

Starting in Spring 2023, these residence halls will begin a variety of renovations, including modernization of the first floor lobbies, reconfiguration of the connecting bridges on floors 2-7, remodeling to single-user bathrooms and a refresh to general finishes throughout hallways and resident rooms.

Renovations to Munsell were completed in summer 2023 and Ferguson renovations will be completed in summer 2024.
