About Viking Hall
Viking Hall is the newest of the residence halls at Salem State. Viking houses 350 sophomores, juniors and seniors in double and single rooms set up in suites. (For fall 2020, all students are housed in single bedroom accommodations. Lounges are closed this semester.)
Each suite consists of student bedrooms, an entryway space, and a bathroom. There are four floors, each with common lounge areas for students to study and meet. Viking Hall also houses a Starbucks and meeting spaces on the ground floor, with a separate entrance from the residence hall.
Viking offers small lounges (both television and study lounges) throughout the building and a large community space, including mailboxes, vending machines, a laundry area, and a television and lounge area. Also on the ground floor is a cafe, meeting room, and staff offices.
