Ruggles is a residence hall that mostly houses sophomores and juniors in suites. Ruggles was originally the Arizona hotel. In 1964, the university purchased it and converted it into a graduate residence.

Ruggles suites 708-714 and 808-814 were renovated during the summer of 2006. Housing Services is considering renovating further suites this summer.

Most 4-person suites go to juniors or occasionally seniors. Most 7-person suites go to crafty sophomores (who are willing to take two doubles to get three singles) and mixed-class groups.
