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.


Floors 7 & 8: recently renovated and kitchens have dishwashers.


  • 16 4-person suites
  • 1 1st floor 5-person suite
  • 2 1st floor 6-person suites
  • 12 8-person suites with 2 singles and 3 doubles
  • 2 8-person suites with 4 singles and 2 doubles



  • Exposed pipes.
  • Poor lighting.
  • Rodent infestation.
  • Poor temperature regulation.
  • Small bathroom in 8 person suites is very small (25 sq. ft).
  • Insufficient laundry equipment (4 washers and 4 dryers when all are operational.)
  • Elevator tends to smell of garbage due to policy of suite trash disposal in basement.
  • No stair access to basement.
  • Inadequate common area (no chairs; flat screen with no remote).
  • Many rooms exposed to nighttime noise on Frat Row
