JBU opened Hutcheson Hall in August of 2004 and added a new four-story wing in August 2008. Trying to take the most appealing aspects of Mayfield, J.Alvin and Walker, the vision behind the design of Hutcheson Hall was to create a unique blend of various living arrangements.
Hutcheson Hall is home to 186 students, housed on four floors. Each of these floors has three different styles of rooms: the traditional wing where six rooms share a community bathroom as in Mayfield; a large suite where four rooms share a community living area and a shared bathroom as in J. Alvin; and a private suite hall where every two rooms are connected with a shared bathroom as in Walker. Each room in Hutcheson Hall is furnished with: two beds, two desks with chairs, two dressers, and closet space.
Students name the large rooms, numerous common areas and friendly atmosphere as their favorite traits of Hutcheson Hall. For student convenience, Hutcheson also has public computers and printers, laundry facilities and a half kitchen on every floor. A full kitchen can be found on the first floor. Residence Life at JBU is about sharing life together. As students share a room, a suite or meet in the floor lounge for prayer or study, our hope is that each student's experience and life will be enriched.
