Thomas J. Kinghorn Hall, a $35.6-million structure, is the third new or extensively renovated residence facility to open on campus in four years. Renovations to DeHority Complex were completed in 2009, and Park Hall was built in 2007. Kinghorn Hall houses 600 students and features all the amenities that are attracting more upperclassmen to live on campus.
At more than 205,000 square feet, the hall features state-of-the-art technology and first-class amenities, including two two-story lounges with additional lounge space and game rooms on each floor, a fitness room, computer lab, music practice room with recording areas, laundry room, seminar rooms for small groups, a multipurpose room for large meetings, and the Tom John Food Shop dining service. Kinghorn Hall was built to LEED certification standards from the U.S. Green Building Council.

Faculty from academic departments, schools, and colleges on campus facilitate study sessions and advise students in each community, helping them achieve better grades.
