Haggerty and Tyson Halls are two coed, apartment-style student residences for junior, senior and grad students. Each unit houses groups of 4, 6, or 7 students and has full kitchen facilities, shared bathrooms, and in-apartment laundry facilities. There is carpet in living areas and bedrooms, and linoleum in the kitchen and bathroom. Haggerty Hall houses the Anchor (a small eatery) and Tyson Hall houses the St. André Bessette, C.S.C., Chapel in which a Mass is said one night each week.

Haggerty Hall is named for Lawrence and Mary Ellen Haggerty, parents of Peggy Haggerty, a University regent who passed away in 2010. They provided primary funding for the building's construction. Tyson Hall is named for Rev. David Tyson, C.S.C., the University's 18th president, who oversaw one of the most remarkable growth periods in the University of Portland's history.
