Student Housing and Dormitories

McNeese features several housing options for students.  Burton, Alpha, Collette, Sallier, and Bel Dormitories are on McNeese Street. McNeese built Sallier Hall, named for Caroline LeBleu Sallier, in 1956, and originally called it Alpha Dormitory.

McNeese built Burton Hall, a women's dormitory,  in 1970 and named it after Alice Evelyn Smith Burton. The first Burton Hall was destroyed by Hurricane Rita in 2005 and rebuilt in 2013. McNeese built Collette Hall, also a women's dormitory, in 1966, and named it in honor of Ida King Collette, a pioneer Calcasieu Parish teacher.

The newest housing units, Watkins, King, and Zigler Suites, and the housing office sit on Common Street, between Cameron and Beauregard Drives. For more information about campus housing, please visit the Residence Life website. See also the list of past campus buildings.
