Morewood Gardens

The largest residence hall on CMU’s campus, Morewood Gardens is home to over 450 upper-class residents. Morewood Gardens offers students a continuity in their residential experience that many students find valuable when deciding where to live on campus. For some, the convenience, diversity of programming, and support that’s a part of living in the heart of campus makes Morewood Gardens the perfect place to be.

This building consists of prime single, prime double, prime triple and standard single rooms and is single gender by room/bathroom. There are two student lounges on each floor, a TV/recreation room (with vending machines), quiet study lounge, a Makerspace, a computer cluster, two sound proof piano modules on the first floor, a fitness center with yoga mats, and a multipurpose room. There are kitchens on the first floor and in B Tower on the second, fourth, and sixth floors as well as laundry rooms on the lower level at each end of the building. It is also the home for The Underground dining facility.

His advice to students: "Get to know people. You will learn a lot and things will make more sense, or less sense. Either way, you will be better for it."

An important life lesson he's learned from students: "Be passionate about something. Whether professional or personal, find at least one thing and go all in."
