Located on the northwestern edge of campus, Grant consists of four 12-story towers. It is directly across from Eco Park (the West Lagoon) and very close to sports fields and tennis courts. This residence hall complex features many double rooms as well as single rooms.
Grant C Tower was newly remodeled in 2012. In 2013, Grant D Tower was also remodeled. Due to the popularity of Grant, room availability is limited.
