Merit Residence Hall is a small non-freshman community that allows students to benefit from activities and services of the University Residence Halls while enjoying the increased independence and flexibility that comes with a single room or suite-style living. You will also enjoy the convenience of being near the SERF (Southeast Recreational Facility), and down the block from the Kohl Center and Gordon Dining and Event Center (one of six dining markets on campus).
Merit is a popular hall for many returning residents, as it recently became an exclusively non-freshman hall for the 2014-15 academic year. Residents of Merit will enjoy carpeted rooms with air conditioning, as well as some room types with private bathrooms in the rooms. With its close proximity to many academic buildings, the shops of State Street, and Union South, residents in Merit will always be close to campus happenings and never too far of a walk to class.
