Transcript For more than 2,000 UH students, a big part of campus life was residential life. The University of Houston has three residential complexes form which students wishing to live on campus may choose. Two twin towers, Moody Towers, are one residential complex. Located on campus at the corner of Calhoun and Wheeler, the Towers housed more students than any other residential housing. The Towers are coed by floor. Many of the international students lived in the Towers, as well as handicap students who lived on the first floor of each tower. Cougar Place, another residential complex located on the corner of Cullen and Wheeler streets, next to Robertson Stadium, is more apartment-style living. Mainly, for upperclass- men and graduate students, Cougar Place residents were older. Many of the Cougar Place rooms had kitchenettes and residents paid a monthly rent, instead of a semesterly fee. The third residential area is the Quadrangle, composed of five buildings, all coed by suite. Law Hall and Taub Hall are residence halls for Honor students. Bates Hall is an athletic hall. Settegast Hall has a couple of 24 hour quiet floors. The last hall, Oberholtzer, is the location of the mail room for the Quadrangle, housing offices, two cafeterias and residential floors. While most students have to fight traffic to get home after classes, many students simply walk across campus to get home. Residential life means never getting a break from campus for many students. It's also a life where a student must learn to cope with sharing a telephone, bathroom and bedroom with another student. Eating cafeteria food and living in noisy halls with paper-thin walls were also a part of residential life.
