The Wilf Campus has three residence halls: Morgenstern Hall, Muss Hall, and Rubin Hall. Below you will find descriptions of all three residence halls.
For First-Year Students:
Living on campus is required for the first two semesters for all new students so they can benefit from the many advantages university housing offers. For any questions about this, email firstname.lastname@example.org
Rubin Hall: Rubin is the home of most new students on Wilf Campus, and the building is nearly entirely new students. Adjacent to the Max Stern Athletic Center, Rubin also contains the Furman Dining Hall and the Rubin Shul, so a pool, gym, fitness center, cafeteria, shul, and more are available to residents without them having to leave the building. Each floor has two Resident Advisors (RAs) to best serve the new students, and Rubin hosts programs throughout the year focusing on the development in college's first year. Each floor has a communal bathroom and a lounge, along with an additional study room or space for communal food preparation. These latter rooms are the only spaces students are allowed to use heating or cooking devices.
