Sellery Residence Hall is currently undergoing an extensive multi-year renovation project through August 2023. The building will remain open for residents in the academic years throughout this project. For additional information, please visit our Sellery renovation project page.
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 Gordon Avenue Market (one of five dining markets on campus) and 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 StartUp, a learning community that teaches the entrepreneurial process to students regardless of whether or not they are intended business majors.
In addition to a learning community, 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) on the first floor of the building.
