Rider Hall

Rider Hall


Rider Hall is a traditional residence hall built in 1961 and sits on the south side of campus as part of the “Quads”. It houses a mix of both first-year and upper division students and is home to First-Year Experience and Returner Residential Communities, with a total of 8 houses. Rider is a mixed gender hall, where students primarily live in double rooms with a roommate; however, super single rooms may be available. Meal plans are required for students who live in Rider Hall. Rider is connected to Piazza dining center and Redeker Center, with easy access to Gallagher Bluedorn, McLeod Center, and the bus stop.
