On-campus housing for freshmen, upperclassmen

Lawrence Hall, originally built as the Sherwyn Hotel, houses approximately 450 students on the ninth through 20th floors. Each floor is coed. The building also houses the Lawrence Hall Dining Room on the third floor, the Point Café on the second floor, and a wireless study lounge on the fourth floor, as well as a great lounge for hanging out on the second floor. Single rooms are available, as well as rooms for two and three people.

Your room will have carpeting and a private bathroom.

You’re wired, too, with one Ethernet connection per person and one cable jack in each room (all free as part of your housing contract). Point Park also offers free, campus-wide WiFi access for all students. 

Furniture includes (per person):

  • twin bed

You are welcome to bring things to make your space your own. Here's a list of some things you can bring (and some things you cannot bring).
