Hall Brown Overcash Hall (HBO)

The entrance to Hall Brown Overcash Hall, commonly referred to as HBO by students and staff alike, is different from that of any other residence hall. Outside the building are massive columns that separate HBO from the rest of the buildings. Students enter the building into Rex’s Lair, an open space that is open to all students. Thanks to the generosity of Jan Hall Brown, the Rex’s Lair space is newly renovated and features a kitchen, a billiards table, and theater style seating for watching TV on the big screen.

Also on the first floor is the laundry room and vending machines for student use. In either direction down the hall, students can go up the stairs to get to the residence hall rooms.

On floors two and three are where each of HBO's 100+ residents stay in doubles and triples. Most rooms are doubles, but the rooms on the corners are much larger and designated as triples, allowing students to room with an additional friend. The residence hall is communal style, meaning there are two community bathroom/shower areas that are designated by gender on each floor.  The bathrooms in HBO are some of the nicest on campus with their new renovations and spa-like feel.  The residence hall rooms feature built in furniture that allows residents to take advantage of amazing storage and lots of floor space.  Outside the rooms, each floor has a common study area in the center of all the rooms.

Hall Brown Overcash is home to the Sed Min Household, a Living Learning Community. Find out more about Living Learning Communities.

HBO, formerly known as West or Wallace Hall, opened in 2008 after undergoing extensive internal and external renovations in the summer of 2008.  The bathrooms were also renovated in the Summer of 2016 courtesy of Mrs. Jan Hall Brown.
