Welcome to Curran Kranzusch Tustison Oetting (CKTO) Hall, in the heart of all the action on campus! CKTO is a social place with many study spaces, lounges, game rooms, and an elevator. You’ll find students hanging out in the well-worn leather chairs inside the front entrance. The staff makes a concerted effort to know you, plan fun and educational programs, and provide support and resources. You’ll find your passions, meet people who will open your worldview, and think more critically. Most importantly, you’ll make friends and memories that will last beyond graduation.


500+ students call CKTO Hall their home.


Middle of campus; near dining and academics.


Large basement, kitchen, and lounge spaces.
