New Residence Hall

I mentioned in one of my last posts that I had the opportunity to move into the New Residence Hall in January. I was an RA (Resident Assistant) in McKay Hall, which has now been replaced by the New Hall (it doesn’t have a name yet). Because of my RA position, I was automatically moved into the New Hall for the spring semester!

I know everyone is excited to see what it’s like inside! I’ll start by going through some features:

  • Two laundry rooms on every floor
  • Two lounges with TVs on every floor
  • Multiple study rooms on each floor
  • Large 1st floor lounge with pool tables and multiple tvs
  • Large 1st floor study area
  • Vending machines

Next, the most important part, what are the rooms like?

  • Four residents per suite, two residents per bedroom
  • One toilet, one shower, double vanity (all in separate rooms)
  • Closet for each resident
  • Microwave
  • Mini fridge
  • Kitchen storage cabinets
  • Ceiling fans
  • Carpet flooring

This hall was definitely designed with students in mind. There are so many places to study, socialize, and even do laundry! Residents have been enjoying this hall for about a month now, and are loving their new home.

As of right now, there aren’t any specifications on the ERAU website, so I took a few pictures to showcase the New Hall.

I hope these pictures gave you a better idea of what the New Hall is like! If you want to see it for yourself, come visit us on campus! Take a tour or come for Preview Day, and we’d love to show you around.

Until next time,

  1. Hi Lindsey. I’ve been accepted into the Honors Program at Embry-Riddle for Fall of 2017. I have been unable to find out where the Honors Program housing is located. I read in a previous post that you are in the program. Are you able to tell me the names of the dorms that house students in the program? Thank you.

    • Hi Bretlyn,

      I appreciate you reaching out. First of all, congratulations on being accepted into the Honors Program.

      The Honors Program does have their own freshmen living arrangements, which is part of something we call a Living Learning Community. This community will be located in the New Residence Hall for the Fall 2017-Spring 2018 academic year.

      I hope this answers your question!


  2. Hello – I have been accepted for 2017 fall admissions I visited the campus on preview day and took a housing tour however, there were so many people on the tour I was not able to get a good look at the new dorm. Would you mind taking some picture of the inside layout of the dorm and sending the pictures to me. I am trying to determine between Adams and the new dorm.

  3. Hey, I’ve been accepted for Fall 2017, and I will be doing a degree in Aeronautical Science. Can you tell me where this LLC will be housed?

  4. Thanks for the pictures! Found out I’ll be living in the new hall for Fall 2017. Do you know if there is a kitchen (stove/oven) anywhere in the building?

  5. Hi Lindsey! I’ve been accepted for Fall 2018, and I will be majoring in Aeronautical Engineering. Can you please tell me where this LLC will be housed?

    • Hi Megan – You’ll receive details about where the Living Learning Community will be housed as it gets closer to the start of the semester. The locations may change from year to year. Lindsey has graduated and is working for American Airlines so I’m responding for her. Thanks for reading and let us know if you have other questions.
