Gateway Hall, a co-educational upper-class Residence Hall, was erected in 2012. This four story residence hall is the largest residence hall on the campus of Virginia State University and is able to house 586 students in a mix of double and single rooms.
This residence hall features an air-conditioned lobby on each floor along with a computer lab on the first floor, multi-purpose room, gameroom, wellness center, first aid room, and laundry room.
Residence Educators (RE), who are full‑time professional staff, are responsible for the overall supervision of the residence halls. Resident Assistants (RA) and Graduate Assistants function as para-professionals and assist the RE in their duties. Night Managers assist the RE with overnight coverage.
