Until the new Honors College building is completed in the summer of 2017, Driscoll Hall houses the Honors College. Residential facilities exist alongside communal meeting areas and the Honors College administrative offices to create a sense of community that integrates all major aspects of college life. Driscoll housing is not required for Honors College Students, but it is a wonderful networking opportunity that the Honors College highly recommends students to consider.
Driscoll’s main lounge has a marble fireplace opposite a wall of well-stocked oak bookshelves. It is often home to gatherings — often accompanied by pizza — that include cultural, intellectual, and entertaining presentations which spark stimulating discussions for Honors students. Students often gather here to study or to just relax, playing games, talking with classmates, or even playing songs on the lounge’s resident piano.
Downstairs is the laundry room and kitchen area where students can prepare popcorn and other snacks.
Driscoll Hall is bordered on the north by the Boise River and Julia Davis Park. Many campus facilities are within easy walking distance, including the Albertson Library, tennis courts, a sand volleyball court, the Student Recreation Center, and the Student Union.
Resident housing in Driscoll Hall consists of a several suites, which feature both single and double rooms. Each suite holds 8-12 residents and has a small lounge and shared bathroom facilities.
