Carson/Hollis Hall

Built in 1954 with renovations completed in 2002-2003, Carson/Hollis hall serves as home to over 90 residents in shared-occupancy rooms. Although two stand-alone buildings, due to the hallways crossing we lovingly call these buildings Carson/Hollis. Carson/Hollis is home to the First-Year Experience for students who want to maximize their Stetson University experience. The building has a common area, laundry room, student lounges located throughout the building and community-style bathrooms on each floor. Carson/Hollis has a resident assistant (R.A.) on every floor that helps students by providing opportunities to develop deep and meaningful relationships not just with their roommate, but with members of the entire building.
