KU’s first residence hall, Corbin, sits on a historic ridge near the site where the University’s first building was built in 1866. Floor plans are diverse and rooms have a variety of dimensions. The Corbin guest policy is more specific than other residence halls because it is a women-only residence hall. KU Student Housing is planning for a restoration of Corbin Hall in the future.
