North and South Bergstrom Hall

North and South Bergstrom Halls, constructed in the 1960s, feature single and double occupancy rooms on gender-specific floors. The two buildings are connected via a hallway that houses four academic classrooms; two of which contain state-of-the-art-technology. The combined buildings underwent extensive renovation in Summer 2019—updating lobbies, shared kitchens, group study areas, new carpet, lighting and a fresh coat of paint. All rooms in the complex have tile flooring.
