Opus Hall


Opus Hall opened in January 2009 and offers suite-style living arrangements for upper-class residents. The modern design reflects the university's "collegiate gothic" architecture. There is a Faculty-in-Residence that lives in Opus and serves this community. Each 5-person suite in Opus has 3 single rooms and 1 double room.
