Bean Hall

Located on the east side of campus near Matthew Knight Arena, Bean offers the easiest commute to concerts and sporting events. It is also located across from the Global Scholars Hall, providing easy access to dining. Bean Hall has newly renovated community spaces and room finishes, and it houses several Academic Residential Communities.

Bean Hall Renovations

Students living in Bean Hall in Fall 2018 will be in an entirely renovated facility featuring community study spaces, two community kitchens, two elevators, and renovated community lounges. The sinks, toilets, and showers are in individual restroom spaces that provide convenience and privacy. All student rooms feature new floors, wall and ceiling finishes, modular furniture, and a new energy efficient heating and lighting system.

As part of the renovation, the new Bean Hall commons area features generous studying and social spaces, as well as faculty offices and classrooms to support the academic mission of the university. In one of the faculty offices, you will find Bean Hall’s faculty fellow, David McCormick, professor of biology and director of the Institute of Neuroscience.

There will be renovations at Hayward Field near Bean Hall during the 2019–20 academic year.
