Located on the corner of Chestnut Street and Avenue C, Bruce is arguably the most character-rich hall within Housing. A hall that houses residents of all classifications and majors, the only thing traditional about Bruce is its architecture. Built in 1946, Bruce is the oldest residence hall on-campus and boasts a history that includes a handful of famous ex-residents, such as Norah Jones and Don Henley.
Due to its close proximity to the Music Building, Bruce is home to the Music and Jazz Living Learning Community and cultivates a creative environment for all its residents.
