Owen Hall is ideal for those graduate, professional and undergraduate upperclassmen who desire a living environment conducive to study, along with the privacy of a single room.
In the summer of 2009, Owen Hall underwent exciting interior renovations. Public spaces were enhanced, including the lobby and service center, the lower-level group study area, community kitchen, game room and TV room. Also improved were the elevators, electrical systems, and a new staircase and card reader access system for the hall were installed. Student rooms were painted. All student rooms are equipped with new modular furniture as of summer 2010.
Riverwalk Market opened in fall 2009 and features customized stations, serving authentic cooked-to-order international cuisine, pizza, sandwiches, burgers and fries. Riverwalk Market also has grab & go items, everything from steamers and cool teas to Yakisoba.
Owen Hall was built in 1960 and opened for 476 graduate students. Floyd Owen (class of 1902) provided $420,000 of the $3.2 million cost and was built in just 11 months. Owen was the first co-ed hall with male and female students living in their respective wings.
