Corbin Hall will be closed beginning in May 2017 and remain closed for the 2017-18 school year for a restoration. It is scheduled to reopen in August 2018.

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.
