Kincannon Hall
Convenient living at the heart of it all. Kincannon is home to our Freshmen residents.

Strong Start

Kincannon provides our freshman population with focused support and development tools to help with the transition to university life.

Ample research across the United States over the last 40 years has provided compelling evidence that students who live in university-provided housing perform better academically, and enjoy a higher degree of satisfaction with their college experience, than students who live off-campus or commute.

Residents in Kincannon are located at the heart of the South Campus community. The hall is adjacent to Stark Recreation Center and Fant Memorial Library. Emma Ody Pohl Gymnasium is located just across 11th Street. Most academic buildings on campus are less than a 10 minute walk from Kincannon Hall.

Kincannon Hall was named in honor of Andrew A. Kincannon, the fifth president of the university.
