Johnson-McFarlane (J-MAC)

Housing DU’s students for 50 years and counting 

Johnson-McFarlane Hall, or J-Mac as it's more commonly known, is a three-story residence hall located on the south side of campus near many classroom buildings.  J-Mac provides a lawn area, commonly called J-Mac Beach, where students play Frisbee, catch some rays, and just hang out to people-watch.

Every bedroom in J-Mac accommodates two students, with furniture and closet space for each. Large bathrooms are shared by the residents of each floor.
