Rider Hall is a traditional residence hall built in 1961 and sits on the south side of campus as part of the “Quads”. It is home to a mix of both first-year and upperclass students and is home to Business, Women’s and Gender Studies, Springboard and STEP Living Learning Communities, with a total of 8 houses. Rider is a co-ed hall, where students primarily live in double rooms with a roommate. Meal plans are required for students who live in Rider Hall.
