Paterson Residence Hall

Paterson Residence Hall is named for board member Albert Barnett Paterson. Paterson's unique floor plan features rooms that open off a central hallway for first-year students, while upperclass student rooms are entered from an external balcony. Rooms located on a central hallway are double occupancy with community bathrooms. The rooms on the external balconies are double rooms with a shared bathroom. Paterson is coed by interior floor or by suite in the exterior stations of the building. The Wall desk is open 24/7 to assist Paterson residents with key/access issues, security concerns, or additional questions. Contact the Wall desk at 504-865-6754.  

Paterson is home to two Residential Learning Communities, Changemaker and Kaleidoscope.
