About this Facility

Recent renovations to Openhym included the removal of dated dividers and built-ins in the doubles. The completely updated first-floor now includes a game room, makerspace, kitchen and classroom/multipurpose space. It also houses our Leadership Living Learning Community.

Due to the unique design of the building, Openhym Hall offers large common lounges on each floor that are utilized as central locations for meetings and RA programming, as well as study space. Openhym is home to the Late Night Study lounge adjacent to the main lounge on the first floor for all students to utilize after library closing hours.
