Point of Interest Details

Named for Ernie Davis, Syracuse University football star and the first African American player to be awarded the Heisman Trophy, this residence hall includes a fitness center and convenience store, as well as lounges and laundry facilities on each floor. The dining center is known around campus for having a great selection, with stations for pizza, pasta, burgers, salads, Chinese food, and daily specials.


Ernie Davis Hall is the University's first "green" residence hall, constructed to meet the standards of the Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) Green Building Rating System, a global standard of sustainable green building and development practices. It was constructed with such features as low water-use fixtures, a storm-water management system, advanced materials requiring less energy to cool, and dining hall efficiencies to reduce food waste and hot-water consumption.
