GPH Residence Hall

Grant, Parks and Heath, known as “GPH,” are three separate residence halls that meet in the middle. Their shared common area is a meeting place for the first-year students and upper class students who live there.

Students living in GPH live mostly in double rooms with shared bathroom and laundry facilities on every floor. The residence halls also have a 24-hour computer study lab, wireless internet, vending machines, and a rec room with a large flat-screen TV, ping pong, and pool tables. There are quiet places to study, and more lively areas to hang out, and students in GPH live right next door to the Health, Wellness and Safety offices.

Themed Housing in Parks Hall

GPH also has unique themed living areas: students from any year and any academic major may choose to live on the Outdoor Adventure and Wellness floor, or the Indoor Adventure and Gaming floor.

The Outdoor Adventure and Wellness floor is open to students from any year and any academic major who share an interest in outdoor and wellness activities like hiking, biking, fishing, fitness, athletics, healthy eating, and more. Students may participate in G.O.A.L. (Get Out and Live) activities with the Recreation and Intramurals team, and commit to a healthy lifestyle as part of this network of students.

The Indoor Adventure and Gaming floor is open to students from any year and academic major who are interested in gaming of all kinds, anime, comics, and more. This interactive community connects students who enjoy adventure, mystery, and quest. Students may collaborate with the Contemporary Entertainment and Technology Club, an on-campus activity group to host events and competitions, including a campus-wide game called Humans vs. Zombies.
