Decker Hall

The Mesa Neighborhood

Decker Hall, at the heart of The Mesa neighborhood and campus activity, is home to 28 UNC Bears. It is located across the plaza from Tobey-Kendel Dining Hall and is a short walk or bike ride from the Central Campus academic buildings. Decker Hall is home to Our Education Residential Learning Community

Reflecting a Dutch-Colonial style of architecture, Decker Hall was built in 1921 along with Belford and Gordon Halls. Decker Hall offers historic charm and beautifully updated traditional style living accommodations. Decker Hall and many of the residence halls in The Mesa Neighborhood are part of the University of Northern Colorado Central Campus Residential District, a registered state historic district.
