About Douglas Keen Hall

  • Male/Female Residence Hall

Douglas Keen is a split level residence hall with two towers separated by a common lobby. It was built in 1968 and underwent a significant renovation in 2008. Keen houses 240 men in the North Tower and 132 women in the South Tower. It is located on the south end of campus across from the Nick Denes Baseball Field.
