Barnum Hall

Barnum Hall is located near Marina Dining Hall and has a fantastic view of the Long Island Sound and Seaside Park. Barnum Hall is a traditional undergraduate co-ed style residence hall that houses approximately 200 students. The main floor of Barnum Hall includes a game room, laundry room, community kitchen, and television lounge. In addition, each floor offers a community lounge and a study area available for resident use.

Barnum Hall’s staff consists of 6 Resident Assistants (RA) who are supervised by a Resident Director (RD). The staff’s goal is to integrate both an academic and residential approach to the hall community as well as assist the residents in their educational, social, cultural, and personal growth. The staff is to be used as a resource in a collaborative approach with residents to assist with the challenges of their new surroundings as well as to create a positive and academically-centered community atmosphere. Residents of Barnum Hall are expected to contribute and respect others in the hall community.

Barnum Hall offers standard double rooms with a limited number of single rooms.

Each student receives the following:

  • Closet
  • Dresser
  • Bed
  • Desk
  • Chair

Each room includes connections for cable, WiFi, and hi-speed Internet (students must bring their own cable cord and Ethernet cable). Additionally, each room is equipped with a micro-fridge unit (combination of a fridge/freeze/microwave) for shared use by the students in the room. Knowing that fire safety is an important concern, all residence halls are equipped with smoke detectors with voice evacuation systems.

The front desk of the hall is managed 24 hours a day by Guest Relations Associates and Campus Security who coordinate the guest visitation process and serve as a resource for student concerns.
