Welcome to McMahon Hall
Located right near the center of campus, McMahon has two towers, North and South, both of which have co-ed and single sex floors. The layout for each floor that houses students is the same. There are 22 double-occupancy rooms on each floor as well as bathrooms and an elevator lounge that is often used by students to study or socialize.
The North and South towers are connected in the middle on the non-residential ground and Mezzanine (referred to as “M”) levels. On the M level, there is a quiet study lounge and a game room with pool tables, board games, T.V.s, and ping pong. On the ground level, you will find the Hall Director’s Office, laundry rooms, and the McMahon Dining Hall.
