Inside The Halls

Patterson Hall is a co-ed residence hall centrally located across Bull Street from the Russell House University Union. Built in 1967 and first called South Building, the name was changed to Patterson Hall in honor of Dr. William Patterson who served as the twenty-fourth president of the University.

Renovated in 2010, Patterson Hall reopened as a suite-style residence in August 2011. Housing 544 students, building amenities include new furnishings, a kitchen on each floor, common spaces throughout the building and a cyber lounge on the first floor.
