With a porch and landscaped courtyard, Colman is an ideal spot for socializing. A thriving community, its common areas like the lounge and basement buzz with activity at all hours of the day.  

Overlooking the tennis courts and tranquil Fox River, Colman Hall sits on Durkee St., right next to downtown Appleton. Built in 1956, it was renovated in 2016.
