Residence Life

Hathorn Hall

Hathorn hall is located in the center of campus and houses approximately 350 students. Students one year post high school graduation by move in date are eligible to live in Hathorn hall. Hathorn hall is a co-ed building, and the breakdown of gender is determined by the bathrooms in the area. Many bathrooms are community-style within a single-gender wing. A few bathrooms in Hathorn Center are fully private and the wing will be gender by room, meaning two men may live in a room next to two women.

The Hathorn Mail Center is located in the main lobby of Hathorn hall, and the Department of Residence Life is located in a lower level of Hathorn hall.

Nearby, students will find parking lot N, a sand volleyball court, the Falcon Center, University Center, Wyman Education Building, and Agricultural Science building. Hathorn hall is also close to the campus trails and South Fork of the Kinnickinnic River. Hathorn hall was the first residence hall at UWRF, and is named after former Academic Dean Irma Hathorn.
