Griffin North

Griffin Hall North offers suite and semi-suite style units, similar to Griffin Hall South (formerly known as Third Street Suites). Located near central campus and just behind the Black Cultural Center, you'll be steps away from retail dining locations including Starbucks and Third Street Market. Wiley Dining Court is also just a short walk via sidewalks (no need to cross the street!). Within the building you can enjoy two retail dining options, Jersey Mike's and Chick-fil-A. Also close by is the Purdue CoRec and convenient bus stops to get you where you need to go.

Griffin Hall North is designed as an upper-class student residence hall and officially opened to students ahead of the Fall 2020 semester. The building is six stories tall with 570 beds. Living spaces are a mix of semi-suites and suites, along with rooms for residence assistants (RAs).

The "Griffin" seal was introduced in 1895 by Abby Phillips Lytle, then head of the art department. She was asked to design the third seal, which contained the slanted shield with uncial lettering and the winged griffin. Assistant Professor of the School of Creative Arts Al Gowen developed a new, more stylized version in 1968. This version is still used today and represents three permanent aims of the university: education, research and service.
