College Avenue Hall

College Avenue Hall is a newly constructed hall that opened in August 2006. In addition to suite-style living, this hall offers multiple FIG and Learning Community options for those interested in enhancing their living and learning experience. Students often congregate in the open and inviting lounge spaces and have affectionately named the main lounge of the building the "aquarium" due to the wrap-around windows that flood the area with light.

The hall is adjacent to Hatch and Schurz halls and close to computing, lounge and study spaces in Bingham Hall. Bingham also boasts Campus Dining Services' popular Baja Grill - a take out location focusing on Southwest and Caribbean cuisine. A short jog across College Avenue bridge takes students to Plaza 900 - a full-service all-you-care-to-eat and take-out dining location. Check out the links for more information on FIG/LC options, amenities, location and more!

The first two floors of College Avenue are also home to the Social Justice Thematic Learning Community for the 2015-16 academic year. Students living in the Social Justice TLC forge relationships by engaging in meaningful dialogue with peers and faculty and exploring historic and contemporary social justice topics through the framework of MU’s values: Respect, Excellence, Discovery and Responsibility. Residents are encouraged to become active participants through self-reflection, ally-building, civic engagement, and to connect social justice conversation to their academic experience. The first floor of the community also provides a gender-neutral housing option. Students who wish to live on the gender-neutral first floor must first submit an agreement.
