The residence is composed of three floors, as well as a basement. Fully furnished rooms, available in single or double occupancy, line the halls of this functional building.
The construction of this residence came during a pivotal period when there was a push for education for women. Flora Cowan Hall helped women pursue their education while living on campus.
