Gunsaulus Hall, named after the university's first president, features studio, one- and two-bedroom studio apartments with updated kitchen appliances, window treatments, flooring, campus cable, five-digit dialing, internet access, and a community help desk. Gunsaulus Hall offers third-year and fourth-year students the benefits of apartment-style living right on campus in a 10-story building on South Michigan Avenue. Students can study and unwind in one of the two lounges located on the first floor. Residents on each floor typically set their own study hours and quiet times, and agree on other guidelines for conduct. Take a virtual tour on Google. To reserve your room in Gunsaulus, visit MyRoom.
