Traditional Rooms

Located throughout campus, and convenient to all students, traditional complexes are the most popular residence halls at Eckerd College. These houses are almost always the first home away from home to all incoming freshmen as well as many upperclassmen.

Each complex has a community lounge, outdoor courtyard, vending machines, and a laundry facility. With a Resident Advisor in each house, traditional houses have a shared bathroom on each floor and are arranged co-ed by floor, with the exception of the All-Female houses and the Gender Neutral Houses.

The dimensions for the double rooms within the houses listed below are approximately 11' x 16', or 200 sq. ft. Single rooms are slightly smaller at 171 sq. ft., and corner-double rooms are slightly larger at 219 sq. ft.

There are several rooms in the Kappa and Zeta complexes that measure 196 sq. ft., and 153 sq ft. as well.

The closets in all rooms are about 6'6" x 8' x 7'.

All campus housing is smoke-free.
