  • South Hall: Opening Summer 2022

    South Hall

    Gannon’s newest residence hall – South Hall – is being outfitted with apartment-style living and modern amenities. The four-story hall will accommodate about 100 students of the university’s growing enrollment while aiding the revitalization of downtown Erie by giving life to an older structure. Construction of South Hall, which formerly was the RCWE building, is expected to be complete in summer of 2022.

    The Gannon Experience

    Ask students when they've had the most fun at Gannon, and you'll get a variety of responses:  making new friends in their FYT group, hanging out in The Commuter Corner, having deep conversations in their residence hall, or going to events at The Knight Club.  Everyone has a different answer.  That's because Gannon offers a wide variety of activities and organizations to meet all interests.

    We recognize that each student is a unique individual with different interests, strengths, and dreams.  Our goal is to help students create a sense of belonging on campus by providing them with a variety of opportunities to find their fit.

    Our welcoming, friendly environment is the perfect place to participate in on-campus events, join one of our 100+ organizations, and try something new.

    Our student-run Activities Programming Board organizes fun events including speakers, concerts, and trips.  Our Recreation and Wellness Center offers group fitness classes, intramurals and sport clubs.  You can learn more about yourself and your place in the world through our Campus Ministry Office and Center for Social Concerns.  There are also countless ways to travel through Study Abroad, faculty-led trips, Alternative-Break Service Trips, and our TRAVEL program.  And our Office of Leadership Development and Campus Engagement offers developmental programs that help students better understand themselves and their leadership potential in order to better the world around them.

    No matter what you choose to engage with, there's a place for you in the Gannon Family.
