Residents of Cole Residence Hall come together and create a fun and exciting place to live. Surrounded by the Lakeshore Nature Preserve, sand volleyball courts, tennis courts, and the Allen Centennial Gardens, residents of Cole always have plenty of options of things to do and see in the area. Home to the BioHouse, students interested in the biological sciences can benefit from participating in this learning community that will help them narrow down the field, and explore it more through academic resources and extracurricular activities.
Cole is located between two dining options, which provides residents with both grab-and-go and sit-down dining. Four Lakes Market (one of six dining markets on campus) is across the street on the west side of the main entrance, and Carson’s Market is just a block away to the east. Are you interested in seeing a room in Cole Hall in person? If so, feel free to schedule a University Housing Tour with one of our University Housing Ambassadors to see a room in the building and learn more about the general scope of housing on campus.
