Russ Hall

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.

There are approximately two Resident Assistants living on each floor and a 24 hour staff of Service Assistants at the front desk.
