Blount Hall

Built in 1995, Blount Hall serves as a residence hall for upperclass students (i.e. sophomores, juniors, or seniors). The facility was built to offer a more independent living environment, with rooms containing bathrooms, a small kitchenette, and, in the case of suites or clusters, a living room area. All Huntingdon residence halls are wired for telephone and cable and are Internet accessible. Single rooms may be requested, but availability is limited and subject to housing demands.

*Note: Curtains for closet openings are not required, but if you wish to make them, purchase a tension rod that opens to 50 inches. The curtain material should be 50.5 inches wide and 74.5 inches long, including the rod pocket. (Half of a queen-sized sheet, hemmed for length and width, works perfectly.)
