About Berks Hall

Known as one of the Tri-County Halls, Berks Hall was the last of the three halls to be renovated in 2015.  Berks Hall is a three-story traditional residence hall that houses approximately 200 students and is co-ed by wing. There is one Community Assistant per wing (two per floor).  Additional rooms in the building include a recreation room, kitchen, and laundry room. The lobby area also contains the front desk and mailboxes for students.

The Tri-County Halls (Berks, Lehigh, and Schuylkill) first opened in 1964 as a women's dormitory complex. They were named for the three counties which KU first represented as a state normal school. 

Berks Hall will also house a Music Special Interest group for students who are interested in music, as well as the  ENGAGE program
