Babcock Inn, a three-story residence hall complex, was purchased by the University in 1975. Formerly a private hotel, the north end of the building consists of three floors of resident rooms with their own bathrooms and outside entrances. The 181-student residence hall is very popular with returning residents and those who like the feel of a non-traditional residence hall. Located at 1717 E. Speedway Blvd. near Campbell Avenue, Babcock Inn features a swimming pool and was named in honor of Kendric C. Babcock, President of the University, 1903-1910.
