Booth Hall is located next to Dellplain Hall and Ernie Davis Hall. It is up a steep hill and is about a 10 minute walk from the quad. One of the biggest complaints about Booth Hall is that is at the top of a hill. Residents often avoid the hill by taking the stairs of its parking garage, Booth garage, which is not attached to the dormitory, but is located about 1 minute away. The stairs are located inside the garage, so it is also convenient to take during bad weather conditions, such as snow and rain. Booth Hall is on the Quad Shuttle route and the schedule can be found at

Floor Plan and Room Set-Up

Booth Hall houses 261 residents on eight floors [2]. The rooms are coed by alternating rooms and floors one through eight are identical in floor plan. On each floor, there are six open doubles, three 2-person suites, one split-double, one single, one four-person suite, and one room for the RA. Also, there are two bathrooms – one for males and one for females, which are right next to each other. There’s also a kitchen area and a lounge area with couches and a TV. [3].

Dining Options

There is no dining hall in Booth Hall, but residents have many close-by dining options. [4]. The closest is Ernie Davis Dining Hall, which opened in fall 2009 and is located about two minutes away. Prior to the opening of Ernie Davis, residents typically ate at Haven Dining Hall, which is about seven minutes walking distance or Shaw Dining Hall, which is about 15 minutes walking distance. Residents are also about five minutes away from Kimmel Dining, which differs from the buffet style of Dining Halls. Rather than using a meal plan, students pay for individual food items using cash, credit, debit, or SUper Food Card. Food offered at Kimmel Dining include Sbarro pizza, KFC, Burger King, sandwiches, ice cream and grocery items such as soda and chips.
