Cumberland Hall

Cumberland exterior angleCumberland Hall is one of our 10 residences named after counties in our state. The name Cumberland is derived from a Welsh word “Cymry” or “Cumbria,” naming the region of the Cymry or Cumbrian Britons.

Located on the northwest side of campus, Cumberland Hall is near Hilltop Dining , the athletic fields, and the New Balanace Student Recreation Center.
