Alexander Hall is also the home of our Living Learning Communities (LLC’s).  Our LLC’s are linked with three First Year Seminar (FYS) courses. Students who register in a FYS course that is linked with an LLC will be housed in Alexander Hall and placed with a roommate of that same FYS class.  Students are able to indicate their preference to live in an LLC on the Housing Preference form.  You must be registered within the designated course to be housed in an LLC.

Alexander Hall is an exact twin of the neighboring upperclassmen residence hall, Marshall. Apart from a few changes that have been made over the years, the buildings remain nearly identical.  Alexander Hall also houses the Peer Assisted Learning Center and the First Year Resource Lounge.
