McKean, Pennypacker, and Stuart Halls

McKean, Pennypacker, and Stuart Halls are residence halls that have been renovated to provide students modern amenities and conveniences. Rooms types offered include double- and triple-occupancy rooms, and supplemental quads. Unlike traditional residence halls though, these buildings offer students private, single-use bathrooms in the hallway area that are shared by the floor. Similar to a home, each bathroom is privately used by one individual. Additional sinks are located near the bathrooms to provide quick, easy use. The ground floor features a living room, kitchen, laundry room, study space, knowledge station, and either a music practice room or a meditation room. Buildings are coed by room (each room is single gender, but may be next to a room of opposite gender).

McKean Hall, built in 1964 and renovated 2017-2018, was named after Thomas McKean, the 2nd Governor of Pennsylvania (1799-1808).

Pennypacker Hall, built in 1964 and renovated 2017-2018, was named after Samuel W. Pennypacker, the 23rd Governor of Pennsylvania (1903-1907).

Stuart Hall, built in 1964 and renovated 2017-2018, was named named after William A. Stone, the 22nd Governor of Pennsylvania (1899-1903).
