Gertrude Sellards Pearson residence hall re-opened in 2012 after a complete building renovation. The new interior features a beautiful Art Gallery installation of the physiographic regions of Kansas. The new interior also features double rooms, single rooms and four-person suites and three levels of privacy for bath: private en suite, single bath and two community baths on each wing. This new hall features the beautiful new North College Cafe with seating area open 24/7 for studying. GSP remains a co-ed residence hall, as it has since 2012, even with the one-year closure of Corbin Hall during Corbin's renovation.
