Swanson Commons

1010 38th St.

Swanson Commons, our newest residence hall, opened in August 2006. Swanson is divided into two wings and houses 239 students in a community environment. One wing features TLA-style apartments for juniors, while the other wing houses first-year students in two-bedroom suites connected by a shared bathroom.

Swanson has all the latest in student comforts, including a convenience store, elevator, and many small study lounges. In addition to the traditional wired internet connections, the entire hall is covered by wireless internet access.  As the lower-campus residential hub, Swanson offers extended service desk hours starting at noon daily.

Swanson is located just minutes away from the quad, next to Andreen Hall and across the street from Lincoln Park.

A virtual tour of a standard double room is available online.

Who can live here: First-year students and juniors
Rooms in Swanson are considered "premium" rooms and will cost 15% more than a traditional residence hall room.
