Arnold Residence Hall

Arnold Residence Hall is one of Bryan's two suite-style housing facilities.  The hall is named for founders, donors, and long-time trustees Mr. and Mrs. E. B. Arnold.

With a capacity for about 100 students, Arnold was built in 1972. The rooms have a connecting bathroom for every two rooms. The building is carpeted throughout with lounge, kitchen, laundry rooms, and storage facilities. All rooms are individually climate controlled.
