Colonial Quad Virtual Tour

Colonial Quad is a sophomore residency, located on the northwest side of campus. The majority of the low-rise buildings surrounding the tower provide a traditional residence hall environment with community bathroom facilities located on the 2nd and 3rd floors, and internal bathrooms are located within 1st floor suites. Livingston Tower, Hamilton Hall, Herkimer Hall, and Johnson Hall are suite style and have internal bathrooms. Laundry rooms are located in the basement of each hall, while Herkimer has laundry rooms on each floor. In addition to that, there are Resident Assistants assigned to each floor in the low-rise buildings, and every other floor in the tower. They are responsible for serving as a resource and facilitating community development on their respective floor/area.

Colonial Quad has an office located on the first floor of the tower run by professional and student Staff. If there are any questions, concerns, or issues that need addressing, this is the place to go.

Colonial has its own fitness center run by Campus Recreation and located in the basement of Livingston Tower. Additionally, Colonial has a state-of-the-art game room and study lounge located on the 21st floor the tower which is available to all residents.
