Bayliss and Henninger Halls are home to the First Year Experience (FYE) and house approximately 800 students living in a co-ed environment. Commonly referred to as Bay-Henn, the two halls are connected by the Bayliss-Henninger Dining Center. The complex houses two laundry facilities, a kitchen, multiple study lounges, a recreation room, and an event space called The Underground! Each year, Bay-Henn students organize Mud Volleyball, a fun-filled school-year kick-off held the week after move in.
