Owen Hall

Owen and Tucker halls are home to the Exploratory Studies Village. Each room in these traditional hall-style residence halls has a sink, while residents share common hall bathrooms. Holmes Hall is conveniently located across the street and includes a community service desk, classrooms, advisors for the Exploratory Studies majors and meeting space. Centrally located in the T.O.T.A. (Tucker, Owen, Turlington, Alexander) community of central campus (view 360°) and mere steps from Carmichael Fitness Complex and the Talley Student Union. The Tucker/Owen Beach outdoor recreation area is a popular spot for students to relax or study. Each year residents battle for naming rights to the “beach” through a series of festive competitions. Owen Hall is situated between the Artist’s Backyard (view 360°) and Owen’s Refuge (view 360°), two major landscape design projects created to redirect stormwater while beautifying the campus.
