Canevin & Lowe Halls

Canevin & Lowe Halls

While both buildings contain university facilities (including professional offices, student organization offices, classrooms and Lowe Dining Hall) on their lower levels, the floors dedicated to student housing have their own entrances and security. A total of 134 men and women live in the buildings on alternating floors, with a resident assistant on each floor. A residence life professional also lives in the buildings.
