About Meyland Hall

Upon entering Meyland Hall, guests and residents are welcomed by Hall and House banners, which are one of the many Hall traditions. Hall dinners, cookouts, and activities in the courtyard are other popular events which bring the residents closer.

Meyland is certainly a unique place to live, full of opportunities for closer interaction and a sense of family. Being a very competitive hall, Meylanders enjoy competitions between the Houses, other Halls, and are active participants in intramurals.

Renovated in 2006, Meyland is a L.E.E.D. certified, coed building and the residents are encouraged to live a green lifestyle.

Come and see why students say, "Meyland Hall is where diversity thrives and the only place closer is home." Meyland Hall is building 70 on the campus map.
