Butz Hall

In the Center of it All!

When you live in Butz Hall you also live in the center of campus and all its activity! Not only does Butz Hall have a great layout — with lots of window space and plenty of light — but the hall also is a popular gathering space for students and activities. Spend your time in the Butz Fireside Lounge and make an impromptu dinner with your friends. Stop by the new student space on the east end of the building and work with "The Crestiad" student writers and editors as they put together this week’s edition of the paper, or sign up for your own slot as a DJ on the College’s radio station, which broadcasts from the lower level of Butz. Plus the Tompkins College Center is right next door! You don’t have far to go to reach the dining hall, theatre, bookstore and other activities (like Pilates, yoga, swimming etc.) that are also close by. At Butz Hall, you will be part of a large family that likes to have fun and enjoy everything the campus has to offer. 

Curtis Hall

My classes are right downstairs!

Curtis Hall

Roll out of bed and right into class by living in Curtis Hall! One of the College’s most stately buildings, Curtis is a multi-use facility with residences on the third floor and academic and administrative offices right below. Curtis Hall is a quiet, studious community, so if you are looking for a place to hunker down and study, Curtis may be the best place for you. Curtis Hall features some of the most spacious rooms on campus – plus all the beds are easily converted into lofts, giving you even more room for you to personalize your living space. Living here, you will have easy access to many academic departments – including psychology, social work, education and business – as well as Health Services, Information Technology, Academic Services and more! Plus members of Curtis Hall regularly develop a tight community and your Curtis Hall floor mates are bound to become friends for life!

Moore Hall

A Room with a View … and More!

Moore Hall

With sweeping views of Cedar Creek Parkway and Cedar Crest’s beloved Quadrangle, Moore Hall may qualify as the residence hall with the best views on campus. Because of its easy access to one of Allentown’s most beautiful parks, Moore Hall also offers you terrific recreational opportunities with great walking and jogging trails — as well as Allentown’s acclaimed Rose Garden — only steps away! In the residence hall, you can gather with your friends in the newly renovated lounge to watch your favorite shows on a large flat screen HDTV. Or you may choose to spend your time next door at the College’s Cressman Library, whose proximity makes a late night study or research session both convenient and accessible. When it snows, you will join your Moore Hall neighbors and grab a cafeteria tray for a traditional ride down the steep hill behind the hall. After sliding in the snow, you will be happy to return to the warmth of your Moore Hall room, recently updated with new furniture, and enjoy a warm cup of cocoa.

Steinbright Hall

Dancing … Shopping … Cheering!

Steinbright Hall

If you love privacy, but also want to be in the middle of a vibrant community, then you may enjoy living in Steinbright Hall. With all the rooms arranged around a central lounge area, Steinbright offers a friendly and lively gathering place just steps away from the privacy of your room. Although it is tucked away on the southwest end of campus, Steinbright Hall is far from out of the way. The hall is home to the College’s state-of-the art dance facilities, so your dance company rehearsal or movement class is held right downstairs. With athletic fields adjacent to the building, you will have a front row seat to field hockey, soccer, tennis, lacrosse and softball games. Although there is convenient parking directly in front of the building, you won’t need a car to get to the stores and restaurants near campus. In fact, with The Shops at Cedar Point directly across the street from Steinbright, you can easily run to the supermarket, pharmacy or restaurant to grab a bite, pick up some essentials or just to take a study break.
