Yousif B. Ghafari Hall exterior

Ghafari Hall opened in 2002 on Wayne State University's campus and is home primarily to 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 hall features 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.
