Welcome to Husson University
Welcome to the campus tour of Husson University. We've picked out some of the most interesting places on campus and have tried to find words and images that will give you the feel for life here. But there's no substitute for the real thing ... we recommend that you make a real visit to the campus, and we hope to see you soon.
Peabody Hall is the true "hub" of Husson's campus. Whether you want to grab a quick bite to eat, catch up with friends before class, or just find a quiet place to study, you'll find it in Peabody Hall. The building includes the Cressy marketplace, art gallery, the library, the chapel, faculty offices, classrooms, the bookstore, academic services and more.
One of the newer buildings on campus, the O'Donnell Commons, plays host to the College of Health and Education, Admissions, Financial Aid, and Student Accounts. With its numerous science labs, the Commons is a reflection of Husson's stature as an educator of health professionals.
Beardsley Meeting House
The Beardsley Meeting House combines academic classrooms and offices for the School of Science and Humanities, as well as being home to Husson's administrative offices and The Gracie Theatre. "The Gracie", which opened in the fall of 2009, is a 500-seat balconied theater designed for fine entertainment and experiential learning.

Each living "quad" includes two two-student bedrooms, a shared common room and a bathroom, and each floor has a general lounge .
Furman Student Center
The Furman Student Center and the adjacent Willey's Cafe are dedicated to students for relaxation and fun--grab some great food, hang out, play pool or ping pong, or watch one of six wide-screen t.v.s during the day. At night, it's a place for music and entertainment, and meeting up with your friends, and maybe make some new ones.
