Residence Hall

North Residence Hall

Located in the north residential neighborhood and established in 2020, North Residence Hall is the home of the STEM Living-Learning Community.

North Hall provides students close access to North Dining Hall, the Jo Ann Gora Student Recreation and Wellness Center, three other close-by residence halls, and several academic buildings.

This state-of-the-art residence hall has centralized air conditioning, free WIFI, a fitness room, a laundry facility, spacious lounges and study spaces, and a large resource room and makerspace for students to utilize. The hall is coed and has semi-private bathrooms (a bathroom shared by a small number of students). Furniture within the hall is loftable, allowing students to truly tailor their living space.

Experiences

Each Living-Learning Community has notable experiences for students. For the STEM LLC this includes:

  • Global Game Jam: The STEM LLC collaborates with the Computer Science Department in this worldwide competition. Participants create a video game in 48 hours and the competition winners have Global Game Jam fund and publish their game.
  • FBI Trip: In the past, the STEM LLC has visited the Indianapolis FBI Office to learn about career opportunities and internships for students in STEM.
  • Guest Speakers: The students of the STEM LLC love to hear from people in the field with similar experiences as themselves. Previously we brought in (virtually) someone who works for Amazon Web Services and was a 2019 Grad (non-BSU) from a Computer Science Program and students had a chance to ask questions about what it was like looking for a job in tech, the interview process, etc.

Resource RoomSTEM 3-D printer

The STEM resource room is the second newest developed in our residence halls. This space is equipped

with 3D printers, a glowfordge, several Mac computers, a printer, a virtual reality system, gaming PCs, and various available supplies to engage in a students’ academic field of study.

The space was designed with functionality in mind and easily movable furniture to accommodate for programming and engagement opportunities for students in the LLC.
