South Campus & Nathan Hale Inn

Nellie Louise Wilson Hall, Louisa Jane Rosebrooks Hall, Anna Mabel Snow Hall, and Rome Commons Dining Hall/Ballroom

Welcome to South Campus! South Campus is comprised of Rome Commons and 3 buildings with suite-style rooms. A typical 4-person suite contains 2 bedrooms, a common room, and a bathroom. Rome Commons contains one of UConn's premiere dining facilities, a ballroom, game room, community room, and mailboxes. South residents are academically focused and mostly juniors and seniors.

South Campus was built as a facility of top quality living and learning space. This residential area boasts private bathrooms and living spaces, ample common space, air conditioning, seminar space, and much more. South Campus is a residential facility that enhances the living/learning environment during the academic year and is utilized as an adult conference center during the summer months.

South Campus offers a unique living arrangement, as four students share a common sitting and bathing area. Students no longer have to worry about a broken thermostat, as the temperature is run by a central system controlled by the students. All rooms are equipped with fast, direct connections to the University computer network and the Internet.

Forty single rooms are scattered throughout the complex. Each has a private bathroom, or shares a bathroom with another single. Unlike the suites, there are no living rooms in singles. There are four person rooms in South Campus which are actually one very large room, not a suite. They are rooms that are large enough for four occupants and have access to a private bathroom just down the hall.

Students are responsible for cleaning their own bathrooms and supplying their own toilet paper. Suites, rooms and bathrooms are inspected for health and safety on a regular basis. Bathrooms in doubles have two sinks, one toilet, shower, and individual cubby holes for each person's toiletries. Bathrooms in singles do not have shelves or cubbies.

Room Furnishings: Bed, chair, built in closet with shelves, desk/writing surface

Suite Furnishings: Couch, chair, end table

History

The original South Campus was constructed in the early fifties. The area was designed to house only women so it was decided that the buildings would be named after women of achievement. In 1995, South Campus was demolished and plans for a new area were born. The new South Campus consists of 3 residence halls and a central commons building, which is known as Rome Commons. The previous building names have been preserved as names of rooms within South Campus. The residence halls in the new South Campus were named for the first three female graduates of Storrs Agricultural School: Nellie Louise Wilson Hall, Louisa Jane Rosebrooks Hall, Anna Mabel Snow Hall.
