Glenn McConnell Hall

Get excited! McConnell got a fresh new look over the summer, including new flooring, living room furniture and paint. And get ready to enjoy the beautiful courtyard

Located near our vegan, vegetarian and kosher-style dining hall, Marty’s Place, McConnell Residence Hall is a four-story building at the corner of Coming and Wentworth Streets. Constructed in 1980 and most recently renovated in 2022, McConnell Hall features community lounges with a kitchen on each floor, laundry rooms located on Floors 2 to 4, and a 24-hour information/security desk.

McConnell Hall is arranged with all suites opening to inside corridors that overlook a central, open courtyard. Each suite consists of two to four bedrooms; one to two bathrooms; a living room; and a kitchenette containing a full-size refrigerator, sink, microwave, and cabinet space for suite residents to share. McConnell is air conditioned and equipped with high-speed Wi-Fi. Please visit the Residence Halls page for housing rates.
