East Hall


East Hall has been a part of the residential experience for many generations of St. Edward's University graduates. Located on the north side of campus, East Hall is home to 138 residents. Freshman female students reside in East Hall North, while freshman men and freshman females live on separate floors in East Hall South.  This traditional residence hall is close to all of the amenities that campus has to offer. Residents enjoy relaxing in the centrally-located recreation area or in one of the two television lounges. The unique layout, community-style living, and intentional programming create a supportive, family-like experience which East Hall residents enjoy year after year.
