Phillips Residence Hall boasts some of the best lake views on campus and is a great place to live for first-year and continuing students alike. The residence hall is a favorite among many students because each resident room has its own private bathroom attached (even though you have to clean it on your own, it’s totally worth it) as well as carpeting and air conditioning. Phillips has a warm, home-like atmosphere on the interior that you are sure to love. It also has a number of common spaces on each floor that residents use for studying and socializing. The building is also home to Open House, University Housing’s Gender Learning Community.
Are you considering majoring in nursing, pharmacy, or one of the life sciences? If so, you’ll love Phillips’ proximity to classrooms. Phillips is also near the Natatorium, providing opportunities for students to be active. Residents of Phillips also have easy access to Four Lakes Market (one of six dining markets on campus) in Dejope Residence Hall. While Phillips might appear to be on the outskirts of campus, it is near many major bus lines and the Lakeshore Path, which are both quick ways to get to the Southeast Neighborhood.
