Ruth Odell Hall houses 72 men and women on two floors in double occupancy rooms. The rooms are large and feature movable furniture, and convenient walk-in closets. Large picture windows brighten the some of the largest rooms on campus.
Odell’s central location, in close proximity to classroom buildings and Templeton Student Center, makes it extremely popular with returning students.
Odell is part of the three residence hall “cluster” SOA, which also includes Akin and Stewart Halls. As a complex of buildings, residents of all three halls get together on a weekly basis for study breaks and regular dance parties throughout the academic year.
Odell Hall also adjoins Stewart Hall on two levels, in a stairwell/hallway affectionately known as “The Split.” The spacious rooms and the picturesque views make Odell one of the coziest halls on campus.
Odell Hall was also the happy recipient of brand new carpeting in the Summer of 2009.
