Benedict Hall, a coed residence hall built in 1963, is one of three residence halls on campus whose rooms are arranged around a central, enclosed courtyard. The large, well-lit courtyard serves as a popular site for student gatherings and activities.


Benedict is home to 92 students living exclusively in double room suites. Each suite is gender-specific, with exclusively male suites beside exclusively female suites. Each suite is composed of two double bedrooms connected to individual study rooms, adjoined by a central bathroom. The closets, enclosed in the wall, are without doors; many students choose to bring a four-foot tension rod to hang a curtain. All rooms are carpeted, and windows are furnished with blinds. Average room: 12' x 11', windows 5' x 4' | Average study room: 8 ' x 10 ', window 3'4" x 3'1"


Benedict Hall has a large open-air courtyard with picnic tables, patio furniture, and a grill. The building also has a large common room with tables, lounge furniture, a large flat-screen TV, and DVD player. The common room is connected to a kitchen and dining space with a stove top, oven, sink, full-sized refrigerator, microwave, toaster, ice machine and vending machines. Cooking supplies are not provided. The laundry room is located on the ground floor and has four washing machines, four dryers, an iron, and several ironing boards. Benedict Hall is air-conditioned.
