About the Community
Kennedy 
Hall is a part of the Residential First-Year Experience (RFYE). RFYE halls are designed as living-learning communities where first-year students can engage with their peers around common interests and pursuits. First-year halls offer intentional staffing and support to assist students in their transition to the University. For information about Residential Academic Programs available in Kennedy, visit the RAP website.

Corner Rooms in Towers
Corner Rooms in Southwest Towers come with the beds set up in a bunked position, since this is the most popular way students arrange these rooms. Although bunking beds is the most popular arrangement, students are free to arrange their furniture to suite their preferences. Planning to loft one or both beds instead? See the Your Room page for lofting instructions.
