Norse Hall, a three-level residence hall, was constructed in 1992 as part of a project that also included Woodcrest Apartments and Norse Commons. Norse Hall has 75 two-bedroom apartments and eight efficiency units. The two-bedroom units include two double-occupancy bedrooms; living, dining, and kitchen areas; and, compartmented bathrooms, all designed to provide maximum privacy for each student. Norse Hall, located on the eastern edge of the residential area, houses 308 students.
Norse Hall is part of the Leon E. Boothe Residential Village which was dedicated in honor of Dr. Leon E. Boothe. From 1983 to 1996, Dr. Boothe served as the university’s third president.
Norse Hall completed a renovation in the Summer of 2020 to repair and/or replace all of the stairs and elevated platforms throughout the building. Additional work is planned for the near future, including repair and/or replacement of the exterior of the building, repair and/or replacement of front doors, repair and/or replacement of showers throughout the building, and various other interior improvements.
