James Hall

James Hall was built at the same time as Cassat Hall in 2009, so the two buildings have a lot of aesthetic similarities out & in, as well as a shared sustainability model and energy-efficient qualities. Like Cassat, James has shiny tile floors rather than carpet—along with ceiling fans in every room. James is known to students from 2009-2012 as Memorial Hall or “Memo,” which it was named to honor student veterans—upperclassmen will still chide younger students who do not refer to the building as “Memo.” Here’s more:

  • 4 stories tall, with a basement that houses two student suites
  • Spacious first floor lounge & kitchen space
  • Stands on the quad surrounding the “mini bald spot,” the green space that will be covered with lounging students anytime the temperature rises above forty degrees
  • Closest Buildings: Cassat Hall (via underground tunnel), Nourse Hall, Myers Hall, Language & Dining Center (LDC)
  • No first-year students, mostly juniors and seniors
  • Offers 21 suites that are broken down into quads and quints that have their own kitchenettes including refrigerators, microwaves, and sinks and common space/living room areas, as well as their own bathrooms with toilet, sinks, and shower

Anne Guttridge is a junior from Columbus, Ohio. She lives in a single as a part of a James Hall suite—and she loves it. Check out this interview below to find out why:
