Sparks Hall

Sparks Hall offers comfortable living with convenience. Located next to the Student Center, which houses the Nobbs Wellness Center, USAO Bookstore, cafeteria, and Dusty’s, Sparks is at the center of campus life!


Sparks recently underwent a $5.2 million restoration, which transformed the hall into a three-story, quaint, double suite-style form of living.



In addition, Sparks contains rooms for men and women in separate quarters.

Rooms are fully furnished with extra-long twin-size beds, desks and chairs, dressers, shelves and a private vanity.

Sparks also provides free wi-fi and cable.


You will also find a computer room and air-hockey tables in Sparks, along with a laundry facility and movie room, which are located on the first floor.

The trimester price includes all utilities plus basic cable, telephone, voice mail, Internet connection and a post office mailbox.
