Fischer Residence Hall

Fischer Hall


Fischer was built in 1965 and houses 593 freshman and sophomore students. Fully renovated in 2006, this hall contains five floors, with three gender-specific wings on each floor. Each wing is made up of double occupancy rooms and some triple occupancy rooms; most rooms are configured as suites (two rooms adjoined by a common bathroom). As Fischer residents enjoy semi-private suite-style bathrooms, they are responsible for the cleaning and upkeep of this space. Plenty of open space throughout the building allows for larger group activities.

Each room is equipped with:

  • a 36" x 80" extra long mattress for each student
  • one bulletin board
  • six electrical outlets
  • one internet port per student and wireless internet (IT Services website)
  • RT London modular furniture system that offers different lofting configurations depending on the size and space of the room
  • air conditioning/forced air heat in each room
  • one closet per student with folding doors
