It’s not just the in-house exercise lounge that keeps Tibbits residents active. There is never a dull moment for a Tibbits Tornado! The Hawaiian Luau during Orientation Week, the “Pushing Carts to Warm Hearts” door-to-door charity food drive, and the Halloween Charity Social make Tibbits one of the most lively and exciting places to live.

Named for Mary K. Tibbits, UNB’s first female graduate, Tibbits Hall was historically an all-female residence. Tibbits Hall embraced being designated as a co-ed building in the Fall of 2012.

Tibbits is part of the DKT (Dunn-Kidd-Tibbits) Complex. The House shares the DKT dining hall and the DKT media lounge. Tibbits also shares 2 fully furnished lounges with big screen TVs and 2 kitchenettes with its sibling house, Lady Dunn Hall.
