Russell Hall opened in the fall of 2007 under the name of Clock Tower Hall. In October 2011, in honor of the generous contributions of the James R. Russell family, the building was renamed to Russell Hall.
Located adjacent to Pauley-Rorem Halls, this three-story building houses 96 upperclass students in four-person, suite-style accommodations. Suites contain a common living space, a bathroom with private shower and toilet rooms, two single rooms and one double occupancy room. The building also boasts a large community room for programs and student gatherings, as well as a full kitchen on each floor to accommodate student cooking needs. The building is also air conditioned, and also has a conjoined study room and laundry room, an elevator, and plenty of common space to use to hang out. There is also a convenient parking lot just outside of the building. The College provides furniture in each bedroom, living room, and the common areas in Russell Hall.
It is a requirement that all students living in the residence halls participate in the full board plan (14 or 20 meals per week). This includes those students chosen to live in Russell Hall.
Russell Hall is co-ed; one resident assistant lives on each floor.
