Russ Hall was built in 1915 and served as the first residential facility of the State Normal School at Montclair, now of course known as Montclair State University. Converted at one point to an administrative building and then later renovated back to a residence hall, Russ Hall provides suite-style accommodations for approximately 100 students.
Originally an entirely female dorm, this residence hall is now made up of gender-blind floors with gender-specific suites. There are approximately two Community Assistants living on each floor and a 24 hour staff of desk assistants at the front desk.
Russ Hall is operational year-round and is home to several members of the international student living-learning community.
