Residence Life

Danieley Center

Danieley Center Building E

Opened in 1999 as a sophomore residential community, the Danieley Center currently houses 812 students – mostly sophomores, with some first-year students. The neighborhood was named for President Emeritus Dr. Earl Danieley, who still joins first-year students and their families on move-in day. The buildings in the neighborhood surround Lake Verona, named for Dr. Danieley’s wife.

A new mutli-purpose activity center and newly renovated commons building, adds to the vibrant life of this neighborhood. 

The Danieley Center features three styles of residential facilities: 8 and 10 person "flats," 4-person single-bedroom apartments, and 4-person double-bedroom apartments.
