Before the Roper Hall as we know it existed, the first Roper Hall was located on Ward Circle. Home to a women's naval reserve commonly known as WAVES, the building was razed in 1951. After the new structure was completed, it opened in 1954 as a men’s residence hall.
As a member of the Letts, Clark, and Roper housing cluster, commonly referred to as “LeCloper”, Roper Hall has a tradition and history of being a very involved and engaged community with a strong sense of spirit!
Residents of Roper Hall have access to many different types of community spaces, within the larger Letts Hall, including the Letts Formal Lounge which is used for large events and classes, as well as the Sky Lounge, a multi-purpose entertainment and program space that has some of the most beautiful views of the city.
The building is home of 2 Resident Assistants, a Lounge, shared kitchen and laundry facilities. Roper Hall shares a complex and garden area with Clark Hall.
