Mary Louise Petersen Residence Hall is the first new on-campus residence hall since Slater was built in 1968. It is located in the West Campus and is adjacent to Hillcrest Hall.

Petersen has ten floors and has been designed specifically to enhance Living Learning Communities. The floor populations are much smaller than other residence halls on campus to encourage making connections with other students who share similar interests. The hall features shared rooms, semiprivate bathrooms, study lounges on each floor and casual dining at Black’s Gold Grill.
