Upperclass Timmer

Junior Senior Initiative banner

Timmer has traditionally been a women's wing, but was re-purposed for an upperclassmen community beginning in 2010. Timmer Upper Class floors provide juniors and seniors with a sense of community with their peers, while also enjoying the amenities of the residence hall. This is a great option for students who prefer a private room on campus or have one or two other students they would like to share a suite with.
