Maria Hall underwent a $4 million renovation in 2008, providing an air-conditioned, on-campus housing option for incoming freshmen and freshmen transfer students. Maria Hall is a traditional residence hall that features suite-style rooms, common area lounges, kitchenettes and laundry facilities. The residence hall is linked to Webster Hall, providing easy access to many classrooms. In addition, student dining is available at Marletto's Marketplace, located on the first floor of Maria Hall.
