The historic Adams Residence Hall building was constructed in the 1920s and still remains one of the most attractive campus buildings thanks to its European-inspired architecture. Home to the International Learning Community (ILC) and nine Language Houses, Adams offers a multitude of opportunities that introduce residents to other world cultures through activities and programs. If you are considering a study abroad experience during your time on campus, joining the ILC is a great way to prepare.
Adams is located across the street from Carson's Market (one of six dining markets on campus), and a block away from Steenbock Library and many classroom buildings, which makes it a great location for all students. Sandwiched between Lake Mendota and Observatory Hill, there is also plenty of outdoors space to utilize for biking, running and tossing around a frisbee with floor mates. Comprised of mostly single rooms, Adams is a great option for students wishing to have their own space, but also be a part of a tight-knit community.
