O'Leary is a great choice for living on campus as an upper class student. As a resident here, you can expect to find support around social activities, recreational activities, career development, leadership and educational opportunities.
O'Leary Hall, built in 1922, is our oldest and one of the most familiar buildings on campus. As a student living in O'Leary you will enjoy a variety of living spaces. This hall houses up to 180 students with options for single, double, triple, and quad rooms on all four floors (Men and women live on separate floors). Each room has unique features, from walk-in closets, to large windows, to nine-foot ceilings. Common spaces in O'Leary are very comfortable and just as unique. O'Leary has both small gathering alcoves on each floor and a large common room with a flat-screen TV on the first floor. O'Leary also has the "Great Hall", a large oriental-carpeted common room for studying, and large group events. The O'Leary floor plan can be found here: O'Leary Floor Plan.
Each spring, returning students select their residence during the room selection lottery, based on seniority and prior housing history.
