Clare Hall is a suite-style residence hall that houses approximately 146 first-year students. Clare Hall houses students of all identifying genders, but each suite contains only students of the same identifying gender. It is a three-story residence hall with an elevator, television lounge (located on the second floor) and two study rooms (located on the second and third floors).
