Higgins Hall

Higgins Hall

Higgins Hall was built in 1965 and is named after Cortland community member Dr. R. Paul Higgins, who was on the Cortland Board from 1917-1948 and headed it the last 24 years of his tenure. 

After it's 2001 renovation, Higgins Hall was reconfigured to provide suites and double rooms off of a corridor on each floor. These changes involved the addition of several designed single rooms and a fully equipped kitchen on each floor.

Higgins Hall Highlights

  • On each floor where residents reside, the kitchen is equipped with a sink, stove/oven and a microwave.
  • The recreation lounge located on the first floor is equipped with a pool table, ping pong table and a big screen TV.
  • The laundry facilities and vending machines are located on the ground floor; you use your college ID as a form of payment for the vending machine items. The cost for use of the laundry machines is included in your dining plan.
