South Hall

South Hall

South Hall is a traditional single-story, coed student residence built around a courtyard in the center of the campus. Rooms are not air-conditioned but are equipped with ceiling fans. Separate community bathrooms are conveniently located in the male and female hallways. South Hall is equipped with laundry facilities, drink and snack machines, and a common kitchen. South Hall is also home to the Fitness Center.

  • Classes and studios
  • Woody’s Café
  • University library
  • Computer labs
  • Staff and faculty offices
  • Academic support services
  • Associated Students of Woodbury University events and programming
