Frieda Parker Hall

Frieda Parker Hall offers suite and semi-suite style units, similar to Winifred Parker Hall (formerly known as Third Street Suites, Griffin Hall South). Located near central campus and just behind the Black Cultural Center, you'll be steps away from retail dining locations including Starbucks and Third Street Market. Wiley Dining Court is also just a short walk via sidewalks (no need to cross the street!). Within the building you can enjoy two retail dining options, Jersey Mike's and Chick-fil-A. Also close by is the Purdue CoRec and convenient bus stops to get you where you need to go.

Frieda Parker Hall is designed as an upper-class student residence hall and officially opened to students ahead of the Fall 2020 semester. The building is six stories tall with 570 beds. Living spaces are a mix of semi-suites and suites, along with rooms for residence assistants (RAs).

An American Legacy with Boilermaker Roots

During the early stages of the American civil rights movement and well before the landmark Brown v. Board of Education decision, sisters Winifred and Frieda Parker were leading the effort to integrate student housing on Purdue’s campus and across Indiana. On Sunday (Oct. 3), the Parker sisters were honored for their courageous leadership with the dedication of two residence halls in their name on the Purdue University campus.
