Cowden Hall Exterior

Cowden is a traditional, coed hall located in central campus. We take pride in our various hall traditions and events, while simultaneously fostering an academically-focused environment for our hard-working residents. This combination of academics and eccentricity makes Cowden hall an exciting, unique place for residents to call home.

In addition, it houses Freshman Connections and some Residential Learning Communities.
