Douglas Men and Women's Halls are the first new residence halls since 1963 and the first new buildings since 1996 when Mabee Library was completed. Each hall houses 48 students and are set up as suite-style living. Twelve rooms, each with their own private bath, surround a common living area. The two halls are reserved for upperclassmen; one houses men and one houses women. A separate apartment houses the resident director for the two halls.
Douglas Men and Women halls are furnished with brand new couches and lounge chairs where students can enjoy peaceful studying as well as social hangouts in the main lobby. On the bottom floor you can enjoy watching television on the big screen t.v or check your email on one of the three computers. Douglas Men and Women are the melting pots of Sterling as you can find a wide range of different personalities that make up the face of the dorms.
