College Lodge

College Lodge is a beloved residence hall – just ask the Lodgers, as residents like to call themselves. Formerly the historic Downtowner Motor Inn, College Lodge is a six-story building near the corner of Calhoun and St. Philip Streets. Lodge is a co-ed building housing approximately 200 students. Residents share a large room with sitting area and internal bathroom. College Lodge is air conditioned, has high-speed internet with Wi-Fi, and features a common game room; a half basketball court; a study room; free, in-building laundry facilities; a common kitchen; as well as an outside courtyard equipped with a basketball court and cookout area. Please visit the Residence Halls page for housing rates. 

Market 159 is conveniently located on the first floor and carries an array of products such as bottled beverages, late-night snacks, organic items, fresh fruits and veggies, cleaning products, microwavable meals and other favorites! Prepared daily, Market 159 also offers a variety of Grab & Go sandwiches, salads and sushi, perfect for students on the go. Market 159 accepts cash, credit and Dining Dollars.
