First-Year Residence Halls
Petersen Hall is the largest of the first-year residence halls. It is a traditional-style hall, with most rooms in this building set up with two double rooms sharing a bathroom in-between. There is a lounge on the first floor with a TV and vending machines. There is also a laundry room on each of the three floors in the building. Petersen Hall was formerly named Alumnae Hall after all of the graduates from Notre Dame College. In 2003, the Board of Directors renamed the hall after Helen Foose Petersen.

There are lounges on both the ground floor and first floor, snack and drink vending machines, and laundry rooms on the ground and second floors.
