About This HALL
Blodgett Hall is a suite-style building located next to one of the main dining halls on campus. It houses upper-class students who want a living arrangement that allows a more independent feeling than in traditional corridor-style residence halls.
Blodgett mainly offers six-person suites that vary in layout but all have three double rooms, a spacious common room with a couch provided, and a full bathroom. There are also several quad-style units on each floor in the building, which house four students in two double rooms, along with a smaller common room, and a full bathroom. The few double rooms available in the building also have their own bathrooms. These are all cleaned once per week as scheduled between our maintenance staff and the residents.
Blodgett has a very well-equipped fitness center with numerous cardio and strength machines. The game room found on the ground level has a pool table, ping pong table, and a foosball table, which residents can borrow equipment for from the RA office.
