Residence Halls

So, where would you like to live?

Oak, Tamarack, Linden? There are five residence halls to choose from (all of which are smoke-free), and each has a unique personality and their own sets of activities and traditions. There are also differences in location, amenities and living options. Take a look around, where do you want to call home?

Birch Hall

Birch houses 204 residents in single and double rooms. All floors were designed with inspiration from our Minnesota Northwoods culture and are designated as co-ed upper-classmen (sophomore and above). The main lobby boasts a fireplace, kitchenette, large screen television, and games. The second floor lounge spaces house the kitchens, study area, and television viewing.  Birch will be the home of the Open Borders Learning Community for the 2014-15 academic year.

Bucky's Scoop.

Bucky talks

Here's a clue. It's the middle of winter. It's ten below and snowing. You see someone in class wearing shorts and flip-flops. What's wrong with this picture? Nothing. They live in the Res Halls. They're like me, they travel by tunnel.
