Valdosta State University
Valdosta, Georgia


 

Summary
Two suite-style residences—513-bed Hopper Hall and 489-bed Georgia Hall—are communities unto themselves, providing students with residence halls that have redefined  campus living for the university’s north quadrant. Completed in 2008 and 2009 respectively, the new housing for the university echoes the existing Spanish Mission architecture with columns, archways and courtyards updated with the modern touches that score high grades for on-campus life.  Hopper Hall comes complete with a 188-seat dining hall, a campus mail center, newspaper office, radio station, space for Greek life, student government and college staff, and high-tech classrooms.
