Welcome to North Quad

North Quad

North Quad, originally named Leon Court, is comprised of four buildings surrounding a tranquil courtyard: Scheffres, Gordon, Reitman and Cable. Students living in North enjoy traditional-style residence hall living on single sex and mixed gender floors. North Quad sits at the top of campus next to the Rabb Academic Quad, housing most humanities classes, and the Kutz Hall administrative building, housing the University Registrar, Campus Card Office and International Students & Scholars Office, amongst others. Furthermore, North is only steps from the Usdan Student Center, home to Dining Services, Hillel, a convenience store, the campus mailroom, the Chaplaincy, Academic Services, Hiatt Career Center and the Department of Community Living

Staffing

North has 13 Community Advisors (CAs) who engage resident in establishing active living and learning environments where each individual is invested in promoting the success and safety of all members of the community.  The CAs create and execute programs, address student concerns, and support the community when issues arise.

North shares an Area Coordinator (AC), a live-in full time professional staff member with an advanced degree, and an Assistant Area Coordinator (AAC), a live-in part time graduate-level staff member earning an advanced degree, with Usen Castle.  The AC and AAC supervise the CAs, manage the residence halls, and hold regular office hours in the community office.

Rooms

North has both single gender and mixed gender halls.  Rooms in North are all single gender, and can be singles, doubles, natural triples, or lofted triples.  All rooms open into a main hallway shared by other students.  Single room sizes range from approximately 130 to 160 square feet.  Single rooms vary in size.  On average, doubles and lofted triples are 180 square feet and natural triples are 288 square feet.

Features

Polaris Lounge, located between Scheffres Hall and Gordon Hall, is open 24 hours.  The space has couches, a large screen television, a pool table, a ping pong table, and a kitchen.  There is an additional community kitchen located in the second floor Cable lounge.  Laundry facilities and soda machines are located in each building, and a cardio room is located in the basement of Gordon Hall.

Polaris Lounge is available for reservation by registered student groups.
