Langston Hall

Langston Hall, a freshmen co-educational honors hall, was built in the 1928-1929 school year and named for Mr. John Mercer Langston, the first president of the Virginia Normal and Collegiate Institute.

Honor students participate in various mentor, volunteer, and developmental projects as part of their honor status.   Langston Hall has been completely renovated and features a lobby where students can relax on the first floor, as well as, lounges on each floor.  Although it is a co-educational residence hall, each floor or wing is designated as male or female only. The residence hall has laundry facilities, mail services, and a computer lab that has internet access and word processing capabilities. This residence hall contains single rooms, single suites, double rooms, and double suites.

Residence Directors (RD), who are fulltime professional staff, are responsible for the overall supervision of the residence halls. Resident Assistants (RA) and Graduate Assistants function as paraprofessionals and assist the RD in their duties.
