Soltz Hall is a 7-story, 163,000 square foot structure featuring 135 suites and housing 394 students in 11 single, 37 double, 39 triple & 48 quad configurations.

The building's first floor, which is open to the public, features the University Store, and two nationally known restaurants, Chick-fil-A and QDOBA Mexican Eats. The second story is home to a collaborative learning space and a rooftop terrace where residents can enjoy the outdoors. The plaza between Soltz Hall and Luzerne Hall includes a gathering space featuring a fire pit as well as the entrance to University Mail Services and the Husky Mail Hub.

Freshman Housing Notice

We do not normally house new freshmen in Soltz Hall or in our on-campus apartments as we believe the best environment for new freshmen, or any new students who have not yet lived on-campus, is in a traditional residence hall. Students living in traditional residence halls with shared bedrooms are more likely to develop new relationships with people of diverse backgrounds, build a stronger sense of community, appreciate and respect the rights of others, and become involved in campus activities and organizations. All of which are important in their growth and development as young adults and to enhance their college experience.
