Ruggles was converted to a residence hall from a New York apartment building in 1964. Each of the suites in Ruggles were recently renovated (the North side in 2007 and the South side in 2008), which included updates to the bathrooms and kitchens to maximize space and make the suites more functional. In addition, new flooring was installed to freshen up the spaces and make them more allergen-free.
Ruggles' location near Amsterdam Avenue gives students quick access to John Jay Dining Hall and all of the restaurants and shops along Amsterdam. This eight-story, suite-style building is one of the only residence halls on campus where many sophomores are able to live within a suite. The street address for Ruggles Hall is 508 W. 114th Street.
Four suites exist on each of the 8 floors - one of these suites houses four people in four large singles, one suite houses six students in two doubles and two singles, and two suites house eight people in three doubles and two singles. Each suite contains one or more private bathrooms and a kitchen with a refrigerator, sink, and stove, with a limited common area.
RP Rooms: 220, 420, 620, 820
The large single rooms that comprise about one-third of the building are split between juniors and seniors, with sophomores filling up the remainder of Ruggles.
“Ruggles has lots of charm. The high ceilings and trim along the walls give you a unique living environment unlike the many cookie-cutter college dorms you come to expect. The suites with recently renovated kitchens are amazing.”
“As a sophomore, Ruggles was a great choice. I can live with many of my friends in a suite, and we have our own kitchen and bathroom.”
"[Ruggles has] great proximity to campus and the rooms have beautiful high ceilings.”
