The Webster Village apartments were built to supply much-needed student housing. Designed to house 280 residents, the apartments were primarily intended for upperclassmen who wanted to live on campus. This was the first residential complex built on campus since Maria Hall opened in 1959. Additional dormitory space, East and West Halls, opened in 2006.
