Residence Life

Colonnades Neighborhood

Kivette Hall

The Colonnades neighborhood, named for the Elon literary magazine first published in 1937, is the place where students from all class years, first-year through senior, "create connected communities" in five buildings that surround the geothermal field adjacent to the Koury Business Center.

In the coming years, the mix of programs and experiences will increasingly support the commitment of Elon University and Colonnades residents to sustainability.

430 students live in five buildings: Story, Moffitt, Kivette, Staley, and Harper. View a 360 degree view of the Colonnades neighborhood.
