Brown HallBrown Hall, which encompasses a large courtyard, was built in 1947 in Gothic Tudor styling. It is a four-story structure housing 264 upperclass men and women in units that are arranged vertically rather than horizontally by floors. Each unit has its own outside entrance. Most of the living units are comprised of two-room suites for three students. Major renovation, completed in 1983, has made portions of Brown Hall accessible to the disabled. The hall is named for Concordia President J.N. Brown, who served the college from 1925 to 1951.
Rooms: Two-room suites provide a study/bedroom combination. Most of the suites are for three students, although there are a few rooms for only one, two, or four occupants. Each room is furnished with beds, built-in closets and dressers, mirrors, built-in desks, chairs, bookshelves, drapes, and internet and cable television access.. Most beds are extra-long size, although a few are regular length.
Lounges: The main lounge (in Unit 1) is furnished with chairs and sofas, study tables, and a piano. This lounge is open 24 hours each day and is available for individual and group use. The main lounge may be reserved for use during daytime hours by contacting Campus Information. The lower lounges in Units 1, 2 and 7 are also open 24 hours each day. The Unit V lounge has regular visitation hours.

Laundry facilities: Located in the basement of Unit 2 and Unit 7 and on the first floors of Units 5 and 6, the laundry facilities include commercial automatic washers and dryers.
