Burford Complex

Burford Complex consists of two six-story residence halls including Burford and Pickerl Halls. Each hall is co-ed by floor and is directly connected to Sycamore Dining, a cafeteria style eatery managed by Sodexho Dining Services. Beginning in Fall of 2010, Pickerel Hall will be closed for renovations.
