Welcome to Rosenthal

Rosenthal Quad - East

Rosenthal Quad offers 160 sophomores suite-style living in three buildings (Rosenthal South, North, and East). Each suite houses eight students in single and double occupancy rooms.  Each eight-person suite is selected by two groups of four students during Room Selection.  Rosenthal Quad is located in the heart of campus, steps away from the Shapiro Campus Center, Sherman Dining Hall, Massell, the science complex, Goldfarb/Farber Library, the chapels and the Hassenfeld Conference Center. Chapels Field is a great space for outdoor recreational activities and studying.


Rosenthal has 3 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.
