MS Cooper & Pinkerton Halls

Hall Description

MS Cooper and Pinkerton Halls are home to the Global Learning Village, which the students named The Embassy.  This hall has three residential floors in a five floor building.  It is a renovated co-ed traditional hall open to any majors.  MS Cooper/Pinkerton is the same building with half of it being named MS Cooper and the other half Pinkerton. 

All residents who want to be part of a stimulating international community can live here.  The goal each year (assuming we have enough international students), is to place American students with international students.  Since we house international students here, it is open year round with break/summer housing options.  In addition to student housing, the 2nd floor of MS Cooper Hall houses the administrative offices of Residential Life.


Hall and Room Information

Most residential rooms are standard male and female double rooms, with a few male single rooms and two male triple rooms that exist.  Male rooms are located on the third and fifth floors with female rooms on the fourth floor.
