Furness Residence Hall

Furness is the most historical building on campus, designed by famous Philadelphia architect Frank Furness. Furness is unique among the residence halls because it is only four stories and is divided into two wings. The rooms are reminiscent of artists' lofts from the movies. Every room is apartment-style and range from studios to one or two bedrooms with a shared living room and a galley kitchen. Every room has tall ceilings and large windows either overlooking the courtyard or the Kimmel Center. Each apartment has a window air conditioning unit and central heating.

Between the two wings is Arronson Courtyard, a beautifully landscaped space open only to UArts students, staff and faculty. Throughout the year, various sculpture installations and performance pieces take place in the courtyard.
