Palmerton Hall

Built in the late 1960's and housing approximately 200 students, Palmerton Hall is the one of the tallest buildings on campus with 5 floors. Palmerton was completely renovated in 2010 with all common spaces receiving an update in 2016. Additional updates were made to bathrooms and flooring in the summer of 2020. All of the floors have common area bathrooms and common lobbies in the middle of the floor. Kitchen areas are also provided on each floor. Palmerton is primarily home to freshmen residents. All rooms are double occupancy and come with a bed that can be lofted with the provided lofting kit.
