Corbin Hall reopened in August 2018 after a $13.5 million restoration that includes a brand new main entry and renovation of all student rooms. It is home to more than 300 women residents in a mix of single, double, and four-person rooms. Note that student rooms were renumbered in the renovation. KU’s first residence hall, Corbin sits on a historic ridge near the site where the University’s first building was built in 1866. Corbin Hall was constructed in two phases, with the original building completed in 1923 and a north addition completed in 1951.
