Walker Hall provides the largest lounge on campus, as well as laundry and kitchen facilities for 112 residents. The residence hall faces Honnold library to the north.

Sontag and Pomona Halls
Sontag and Pomona Halls are the the newest residence halls on campus. Completed in Spring of 2011, these residence halls feature over 30 suites with approximately 153 single bedrooms. Suites range in size from 3 bedroom to 6 bedrooms, and each suite has a common livingroom.
Built to LEED (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design) platinum standards, the highest level of sustainable building, the new residence halls are among the greenest in the country. If the U.S. Green Building Council certifies them as platinum, they will be only the second large-scale, new residence hall project to meet those comprehensive standards, following Western Oregon University, and the first platinum-certified residence hall in California.
