Johnstone Center

Residence Life


Johnstone Center is composed of three wings: Pryor, Colter, and Mullan.

An energetic and social wing of Johnstone Center, Mullan is a place for traditional-age students. Mullan provides a smaller, more intimate living environment where close friendships develop early. Mullan is a co-ed wing, separate gender by floor.

Pryor and Colter wings of Johnstone Center are co-ed wings with separate genders by floor. It is the only living option exclusive to students over the age of 21. This is a popular living option where students return year after year because they feel comfortable and at home. Also, many international students reside here, creating a fun and diverse community. Pryor and Colter wings offer single and double rooms with ample closet space, sinks, a lounge chair and carpet.
