Patterson Hall is a co-ed, community-style residence hall housing approximately 180 first-year and upperclassmen students living in double- and triple-occupancy rooms. Patterson is also home to multiple Living Learning Communities (LLCs), including the Engineering & Physics LLC, German Language LLC, and the International LLC.
The Engineering & Physics community will provide first-year and upperclassmen engineering and physics majors with opportunities to work closely with faculty and staff to supplement classroom learning with real-world experiences.
The German Language community, our newest LLC, is for any student who is interested in learning more about the culture, history, and language of Germany. Students living in this LLC will have many opportunities to work closely with faculty while perfecting their German language proficiency. Students are not required to be German majors, but are strongly encouraged to take a German course during the academic year if interested in being a part of this community.
In the International Community, domestic students and International students live together in order to learn about each others’ countries, cultures, and histories. In partnership with the Center for Global Education, students who live on the International community enjoy a vibrant, social, and educational atmosphere that provides amazing opportunities to expand their awareness of and engagement with global issues.
Nestled on the south side of campus, Patterson is only steps away from the Benedetti-Wehrli Stadium, across the street from Kaufman Dining Hall, and only a block away from downtown Naperville shopping and eateries.
