Johnson Hall opened in August 2009 and is UMKC’s first facility named for an African-American. It is a part of the huge legacy Herman and Dorothy H. Johnson left to the Kansas City area.
With space to house 329 students, the four-story residence hall features two wings of semi-suite, double- and single-occupancy rooms connected via a glass-encased corridor. Inside you’ll find private study rooms, community kitchens and social/entertainment lounges on each floor. This is definitely a place where you can get to know other students with similar interests and academic goals.
Each floor consists of two wings – one each for male and female students (fourth floor is generally all female). Johnson Hall extends west to the Trolley Trail (pedestrian/bike trail) on the east side of Brookside Boulevard. The facility is within walking distance to the Country Club Plaza.
