Adohi Hall occupies a prominent place on the southern end of campus. The name is Cherokee, meaning “woods” and the hall itself is nestled among trees in the university’s southern gateway, near the Trail of Tears marker.
Housing staff and faculty members lead Living Learning Communities for art, design, theatre, music, architecture, English, literature and writing, which give students access to special programs and help students succeed.
The workshops of the lower courtyard comprise rehearsal and performance areas, music and recording studios, and “maker spaces” for creating class projects.
The hall has student lounges, kitchens, study areas, as well as classrooms and outdoor spaces.
10% of each gift made will be applied to the Student Affairs Housing Scholarship Fund, to be awarded to a student living in a residence hall.
The hall has 708 beds in 368 rooms and 11,000 square feet of collaborative student workshop space.
“Supporting student success is the U of A’s highest priority,” said Charles Robinson, vice chancellor for student affairs. “Studies have shown that students who live on campus tend to be more engaged in campus activities, more connected to campus resources, are more likely to succeed in the classroom, stay in school and graduate than students who live off campus.”
Please support this one-of-a-kind living learning community with a gift to Adohi Hall!
Many of these spaces, including all bedrooms, are available for naming. Contact Sue Harris, director of development for Student Affairs, at 479-575-7408 for more information on creating a Living Space Legacy in your name or in the name of a family member. You may also download a pledge form here.
