Campus information

J. Alvin Brown Hall

Rather than traditional long hall corridors, J. Alvin has 14 suites, each consisting of six to eight rooms and a community bathroom located around a common "living room" area. This structure creates an excellent dynamic for building friendships. In total, J.Alvin houses 204 male students. All rooms, with the exception of eight singles and 18 triples, are double occupancy.

J. Alvin is known for its large multi-purpose atrium that hosts university events throughout the year, and its very own three story climbing wall!

The residence hall also has two computer labs, a study room, several study areas with white boards, a t.v. lounge/area, a large projector and screen to watch the big game, a kitchen and dining area, a prayer room, a private weight room where residents can work-out and a four-level elevator. 

Each room in J.Alvin is furnished with: two beds, two desks with chairs, two dressers, and closet space.

Mayfield Hall

Mayfield Hall is an all-women's two story housing facility built in a U-shape. The three wings have been affectionately dubbed Old, Middle and New. In the center of the "U" rests a beautiful courtyard in which many activities are hosted throughout the year. Mayfield has the capacity to house 250 women. All three wings have two floors, each containing approximately 20 rooms with one large centrally located bathroom. All the rooms, 134 in total (with the exception of seven single rooms), are double occupancy.

Each room in Mayfield is furnished with: two beds, two desks with chairs, two dressers, and closet space. Each room in the Old and Middle wings has a sink and there are built-in bookshelves in every room in the dorm. All joined by a spacious lobby looking out toward the courtyard.

Walker Hall

Walker is home to 166 men and women of all classes. Those who live here enjoy its central location on campus and its scenic views from many of the windows. Residents also love the suite-style rooms. Every two rooms share a bathroom, so it is convenient and fun to get to know the people in each adjoining room as well as individuals who live down the hall. Residents enjoy three large lounges, computer rooms on each level, and a piano as well as laundry facilities on each wing, and two kitchens. Six handicap accessible rooms available.

Each room in Walker is furnished with: two beds, two desks with chairs, two dressers, and closet space.

Hutcheson Hall

Hutcheson Hall is home to 186 students, housed on four floors. Each of these floors has three different styles of rooms: the traditional wing where six rooms share a community bathroom as in Mayfield; a large suite where four rooms share a community living area and a shared bathroom as in J. Alvin; and a private suite hall where every two rooms are connected with a shared bathroom as in Walker. Each room in Hutcheson Hall is furnished with: two beds, two desks with chairs, two dressers, and closet space.

Students name the large rooms, numerous common areas and friendly atmosphere as their favorite traits of Hutcheson Hall. For student convenience, Hutcheson also has public computers and printers, laundry facilities and a half kitchen on every floor. A full kitchen can be found on the first floor.


The Townhouses at JBU are home for up to 106 upper class men and women. There are two sides to each house, each side housing eight to 10 students. Each side has a full kitchen, furnished living area, and bedrooms fully furnished with beds, desks, chairs, dressers, and closet space.
