Yousif B. Ghafari Hall

Ghafari Hall opened in 2002 on Wayne State University's campus and is home to primarily first year students. It has five floors, each specified with a specific theme or Living Learning Community. Students really like the smaller, home-like feel that Ghafari Hall brings. Ghafari shares a building with a newly-renovated Starbucks and an Einstein's Bagels so you never have to go far for coffee. Additionally, there are many opportunities to be a leader in Ghafari Hall, such as being on the Ghafari Hall Council. Ghafari Hall Council is a board that helps bring change and creative events to the hall.

The most unique thing about Ghafari Hall is that each floor brings something different and offers a place for like-minded individuals to learn and grow together. The Resident Advisors often times also fall into that same major or identity, so they are equipped to advise and guide the residents of their floors to success.
