The Rust College Residence Education Department is a major component in the development of students. We believe that Residence Halls are a place to live, learn, excel academically, and enjoy. 

There are various activities going on in the residence halls such as seminars, movie nights, and games, etc. Each residence hall is equipped with a flat screen TV, and cable service to emulate all the comforts of home.

The buildings are managed by a live-in Residence Hall director and an Assistant Director. Our Resident Assistants (RA),  assist with the day to day operation of the residence halls and provide quality programs that are both fun and educational in nature.

The college has six Residence Halls on the campus. Three (3) female, two (2) male, and one single parent apartment facility.

Davage-Smith-Hall is a two-story brick building that houses 275 male students and the rooms have built in desk drawers and closet space.

E.L. Rust Hall is a two-story building which houses approximately  194 female freshmen students;

Emma Elzy Hall
is a two-story building which houses approximately 208 upper-class female students;

Wiff Hall

Gross Hall is a three-story brick building which houses approximately 90 male students; and
