Taylor Hall is a four-floor, coed residence hall that was recently renovated in 2005. Renovations have made it the only hall to offer individual climate control. In addition, bunks/lofts are provided to residents; no personal bunks/lofts are permitted.
The hall features a lower-level, open concept kitchen, expanded recreational areas, music practice rooms and a large study area. The lobby has been designed as a gathering place for hall residents and fosters healthy interaction among community members.
Taylor Hall has a tradition of active community council and strong Homecoming participation. It is one of only four halls that remain open during academic year breaks. Due to the facility's improvements, the housing fee for Taylor is higher than that of the other halls.
Centrally located on campus, Taylor Hall is across the street from Albee Hall and the Kolf Sports Center and just down the road from Reeve Union.
