Towering above campus with one of the best views of the city, Murray Hall houses 170 male and female students on alternating floors. Air-conditioned rooms on each floor circle the central core. As a result, both single and double rooms vary in size and shape. In addition to two formal lounges on either side of the main entrance, a kitchen, study tables, and two informal lounges-including televisions and a pool table-are housed in the lower level. Laundry facilities are located just off each lounge. And don't worry about treading up all those stairs-Murray's eight floors are serviced by two elevators.
Murray Hall is unique in that it attracts a majority of fine arts-related and international students. With smaller floors Murray offers a greater sense of floor community. Over the years, Murray has developed activities specific to Murray that not only involve individual floors, but the hall as a whole.
Murray Hall residents are constantly creating and building on traditions within the hall...one deeply rooted tradition that emphasizes this sense pride is the painting of a mural in the lounge on each floor.
