O'Shaughness Hall

A coed residence hall tucked in the back side of campus, O'Shaughnessy hall is a high-rise style building with study lounges, TV lounges, community kitchens, billiards, and laundry in house. Living in O'Shag puts you on the Prairie Quad where basketball courts, volleyball courts, War Memorial Gym, Dietrick Dining Hall, and West End Dining Hall are a short walk away. Lane stadium and Cassell Coliseum are also close, with McComas Hall just down from there. Rooms are approximately 12' by 14' and include twin beds, desks, chairs, dressers, closets, a sink, a mirror, and a hall style bathroom. O'Shaughnessy does not have air conditioning, but the outdoor space is shade-covered and makes for a great place to hang out or do homework when the weather is warm.
