Botsford/Swinford Hall is located in the new north residential neighborhood. This state-of-the-art residence hall has centralized air conditioning, free WIFI, a fitness room, spacious lounges and study spaces, a game room, a green screen room, and an equipment room complete with technology and camera equipment for residents to use on projects. Botsford/Swinford is home to the CCIM Living-Learning Community.

The hall is coed and has semi-private bathrooms (a bathroom shared by a small number of students). Furniture within the hall is loftable, allowing students to truly tailor their living space. The building's location provides students close access to North Dining Hall, the Jo Ann Gora Student Recreation and Wellness Center, three other close-by residence halls, and several academic buildings.

Botsford/Swinford, affectionately known as BotSwin, is an active community with a lot of positive energy and hall pride. When students are not studying or working on projects, they are found attending fun events put together by hall staff and Hall Council.
