Sellery Residence Hall is one of two large tower-style halls in the Southeast Neighborhood of campus that is made up of mostly-freshman residents. This residence hall is located next to the Gordon Avenue Market (one of six dining markets on campus) and some academic buildings like Vilas and Grainger Halls. With basketball courts in its backyard, Sellery provides a great space for residents to shoot some hoops in their free time.
Sellery is also home to two learning communities that provide residents with a number of opportunities to get more involved in academics and extracurricular activities.
- StartUp, formerly the Entrepreneurial Residential Learning Community (ERLC), teaches the entrepreneurial process to students regardless of whether or not they are intended business majors.
- The Studio, our Creative Arts Community, encourages students who are passionate about dance, theatre, art, literature, film, fashion, music, design, engineering and computer science, to augment their core curricular studies through experimentation and collaboration.
In addition to these learning communities, Sellery has the Sellery Hall Association (SHA). SHA is a group of involvement opportunities designed to help you meet friends and start building your collegiate resume. Sellery also has its own set of academic advisors from Cross-College Advising Services (CCAS) stationed on the first floor of the building.
