LMU Announces Names of New Residence Halls

The future Palm South courtyard for upper division students

LMU recently announced the names of the two new residence halls being constructed near Doheny Hall: Palm North and Palm South.

Selected in collaboration with LMU Housing, the names reflect the new buildings’ location at the inception of Palm Walk, the campus’ main thoroughfare, as well as a breezy nod to LMU’s beachy locale.

Palm North will provide housing to first year students, while Palm South will serve as upper division residences. Each residence hall will also offer new Living Learning Communities (LLCs) for students who share a common interest or academic pursuit. Together, Palm North and Palm South will provide on-campus housing for over 600 undergraduate students.

Construction continues through the spring semester, while summer will see interior decoration ahead of the buildings’ opening for the Fall 2020 semester.
