New Emory University Residence Hall to Open in Spring 2014


This spring, Emory University will complete a new residence hall—the sixth in seven years—that will provide University Conferences with approximately 350 additional beds for summer guests. Eleonore Raoul Hall will open in May 2014 and have a mix of single and double rooms on double-loaded corridors with hall bathrooms, along with a large number of semi-suite rooms with private bathrooms. Many of the features were constructed with conferences in mind, including a large two-story event space with a small attached catering kitchen and plenty of natural light. In addition to the much-welcomed sleeping corridors, Raoul Hall will also feature new office space for the Office of Residence Life and Housing, including University Conferences. Raoul Hall follows in the tradition of sustainable building at Emory, and was built to LEED gold certification standards.

Eleonore Raoul was the first woman graduate of Emory Law School. Though Emory’s chancellor vigorously opposed coeducation and refused to allow women to matriculate at Emory, Raoul took the opportunity to enroll in 1917 while the chancellor was out of town, and completed her degree in 1920.
