Arnett Hall

Arnett Hall

SPU’s newest residence hall is named after the Arnett family, whose connection to SPU dates back to the early 1900s and continues today. SPU board member Becky Arnett Gilliam ’80 belongs to a family line that includes more than 40 members who have attended SPU.

Arnett Hall opened for students at the beginning of Autumn Quarter 2014. The 74,794-square-foot building houses 150 beds in 76 single- to triple-bed suite-style rooms. It boasts a comfortable main lounge, floor lounges, an exercise room, five common kitchens, and four study rooms. Arnett Hall is centrally located on campus, providing sweeping views from its rooftop deck and easy access to campus buildings.

This inaugural year of Arnett Hall offers residents the unique opportunity to create new residence hall programs and traditions that will last for years to come. The opening of SPU’s newest living and learning community was celebrated in September with a dedication and ribbon-cutting ceremony.
