Johnson Complex provides on-campus housing to students. It is
divided into two buildings: four-story Botsford/Swinford and eight-story Schmidt/Wilson. Schmidt/Wilson
housed students enrolled in the Honors College until 2009. It currently is the
on-campus home for students participating in the university's Emerging Media Living-Learning
The residence halls feature Z-shaped rooms distinct from other housing options for
students living on campus.

Schmidt, professor and head of the industrial arts department from 1935 to 1958.
