Ashton Hall is a welcoming community known for its vibrant energy. Ashton is SPU’s largest residence hall, and its hilltop setting offers a striking view of the Cascades and Olympic mountains.
Ashton offers residents unique experiences such as Ashton Cup (more than a lip-sync contest), Hall Ball (a spring formal held at different Seattle venues), and Fall Quarter Retreat (a weekend excursion to SPU's Camp Casey on Whidbey Island).
Three large community lounges and an exercise room provide residents with space to socialize, study, and work out.
Opened in 1965 and originally named Upper Residence Hall, Ashton was renamed in honor of Dr. Philip F. Ashton for his service as psychology professor from 1929 to 1971.
