About Atlantic Hall

Atlantic Hall, located on Central Campus, houses 452 juniors and seniors in 77 six-person furnished apartments. Each fully air-conditioned apartment includes two double rooms, two single rooms, two bathrooms, a kitchen, and a living room area. Each kitchen includes a full-size stove, refrigerator and dishwasher. There is a price differential for students choosing to select a single room versus a double room in each apartment. Atlantic Hall offers small lounges throughout the building, and a large community space on the ground floor including a fitness room, laundry area, pool tables, in addition to a television and lounge area. Also on the ground floor is a seminar room where classes, movie nights and group meetings are held. Atlantic Hall is substance-free and fully air-conditioned.
