North Hall is part of the university’s first public-private partnership project. This project was led by Red Draw’s Craig Turner, acting chairman of the Board of Regents for Eastern Kentucky University at the time of the hall’s development. The new residence provides quick access to academic buildings, dining facilities, Starbucks, Crabbe Library, Powell Student Center and plenty of green space. North Hall houses over 500 students and is ideally located near New Martin Hall with quick access to academic and common spaces. All rooms are suite style with an adjoining bathroom. A limited number of four-person “super suites” are available, featuring shared living space, kitchenette and two full bathrooms. The living-learning environment includes two large classrooms and a 80-person multi-purpose room.
