Johnson Hall is for first-year students and up. Four-person suites and single person rooms with shared bathrooms are available.

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.

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.

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.
