Completed in 1986, these five buildings — Roser Hall, Malesardi Hall, Kalman-Posner Hall, Vidinghoff Hall, and Silbermann Hall — offer independent living for upper-class students. Each floor consists of four large suites that offer apartment-style living for four students, each with their own private bedroom. The bedrooms connect to a large common area that includes a furnished living room and full kitchen and bath. Smaller suites are also available. Common laundry facilities are available within the center. First-floor suites are available for students with mobility needs.

Though larger furniture pieces are provided, students who live in these halls are responsible for bringing their own cooking and cleaning supplies and utensils and keeping their suites clean.
