Kearney Hall is one of the two four-story residence hall buildings that make up Tercero South Residence Halls. Most of its spacious rooms are shared by three residents. All of the rooms have air-conditioning, and require a card/key to unlock. The fourth floor is the Women's floor.

Construction was completed in 2005. It was known as "Building 1" until 2006, when it was named for Patricia Kearney, the former executive director of undergraduate housing. Should the building ever be fortified against zombie attack, it will be renamed again to Fort Kearney.
