Morrison Residence Hall

Morrison Residence Hall is one of four dormitories that comprise the South Campus residence community, an informal community space created for and by Black students. Despite being the most integrated housing space on campus, the South Campus dorms were regarded by white students and administrators as a site of Black self-segregation, instead of a crucial site for the building of the University’s community of Black students.
