McDonald Exterior

Many residents describe McDonald Hall as a “home away from home” and as a small, tight-knit community of 118 residents, it is easy to see why. McDonald Hall is an apartment-style hall and is a central part of The Courtyards’ community. The Courtyards are located on central campus and are nestled between the Health & Learning Center, Wall Aquatic Center, post office & bookstore, and University Union. Residents are encouraged to take advantage of the hall’s personal services, which include a grill & patio located in the open courtyard, a spacious study lounge, and a game lounge with a pool table, television and gaming system. In addition to McDonald Hall, residents are able to enjoy all of The Courtyards’ amenities, including the front desks located in Gillenwater Hall and Raymond Hall, Gillenwater’s horseshoe pit, volleyball net, & gazebo, and Raymond’s exercise room. Residents are also encouraged to participate in The Courtyards’ various events such as the Courtyard Hall Association’s (CYHA) ‘Yote Floats, the annual Courtyards Pack Party in the fall, and The Heroes’ Feast in the spring.
