Mitchell Towers

The Basics

Mitchell Towers is located on Mingo Street between Jackson and Porter Streets. Mitchell is a suite-style residence hall, meaning two double-occupancy rooms are connected by a bathroom (four people share a bathroom). Mitchell Towers has four floors per tower, and there are two towers within the entire complex. This residence hall houses 233 sophomore to senior-status students. Mitchell is a community-centered building. Each tower is designed in a large circle of rooms with the floor’s common areas located in the center and the rooms lining the perimeter. The two towers are connected by a common entrance on the first floor.
