here are several iconic images when people think of a college campus. A vast green quad filled with students and sun. Tree-lined paths leading to stately buildings. A professor overseeing a lecture hall of undergraduates. You would have to add to those images the university dormitory, more commonly referred to today as the "residence hall" to emphasize the building's place as a center of student life. Your visit to campus is an opportunity to check it out for yourself.
