Florence Moore Hall (or “FloMo”) consists of seven separate houses – some all-frosh, and some all-sophomore - that radiate from a central dining servery. Built on a hillside near White Plaza, Tresidder Student Union, and Lake Lagunita, FloMo is perhaps best known for the wall-to-wall windows in each room and for the up to eight flavors of ice cream served at every meal.

The Structured Liberal Education program, based in Alondra and Cardenal houses, focuses on artists and intellectuals drawn largely, but not entirely, from the Western tradition. This is a frosh program, although some sophomores will be assigned for 2021-22. (This is an update as of 4/19/21. Paloma was originally listed as a SLE residence. Paloma will not be part of this program for 2021-2022.)

Designed by Milton Pflueger, head of California’s oldest architectural firm, Florence Moore Hall was deliberately built to be asymmetrical. The often-recounted story is that Florence Moore, who donated $1 million for the residence, provided the money on the condition that ice cream be served each day in the dining halls. She also specified that closets in each room accommodate a woman’s formal gown. Florence Moore’s husband, Robert S. Moore, joined her in having a residence named after him - the Row house called Robert S. Moore South or, more commonly, BOB.
