Jobe & Murphy Halls

Hall Description

Jobe and Murphy Halls have five residential floors in a five floor building.  It is a renovated co-ed traditional hall.  Jobe/Murphy is the same building with half of it being named Jobe and the other half Murphy. 

Most residential rooms are standard male and female double rooms, with some single rooms (mostly male) and triple rooms (mostly male).  Male rooms are located on the first, fourth, and fifth floors with female rooms on the second and third floors.

JOBE:  Jobe Hall is open to any major.

MURPHY:  Murphy Hall is home to the Honors Learning Village (new for Fall 2019).  Students who want to live in Murphy must be approved through the Honors Program.  The Honors Program does all of the roommate matching and assigning after a student has completed a housing application and completed all necessary requirements for the Honors Program.  Please visit the Honors Housing website for more details.  You can also visit the Honors Program website for more information about the overall program.
