Zura is a traditional-style residence hall for first-year students. Traditional-style halls are co-ed (single-gender by room) with communal restrooms on each floor. Zura has 300 units with triple-occupancy room types (and limited quads, doubles and singles). Room types are based on availability and cannot be guaranteed. This hall is located on the east side of campus near The Garden Restaurant. Residents of Zura are permitted to occupy their room during university break periods.
