Birch Hall is one of the Laboratory’s two large student dormitories. Located next to Spruce Hall, Birch houses 16 undergraduate students in an atmosphere similar to a traditional college dormitory. Birch houses both male and female students, and there are two gender-specific bathrooms. Each room has a campus phone extension and ethernet ports. Wireless connectivity is also available. Birch Hall is winterized and students participating in academic-year undergraduate short courses stay in this dorm.
