Named after the University’s first campus, this 293-bed residence hall opened in September 2003. Rutherford Hall houses upperclassmen students in double bedrooms with a private bath. All rooms are independently climate-controlled. Laundry, vending and trash facilities are located near the elevator on each floor.
In addition to the spacious bedrooms, each of Rutherford’s five floors have common lounges for students to use as a social or study space. Rutherford Hall forms a quad with Florence and Hamilton Twombly Halls creating a large courtyard and lawn space, which becomes a social hub for students; whether they are having a BBQ, playing a wiffle ball game, tanning, catching up on reading, or enjoying the newly installed swings.
