Letts Hall

Letts Hall built in September of 1963, named for John Cowen Letts, an active Methodist layman and generous supporter of both the Church and American University. He served as President of the University as well as a member of the Board of Trustees.

Letts Hall is home to an entirely first year student population. It has a traditional residence hall design with corridor-style rooms and shared hall bathrooms. It has a tradition and history of being a very involved and engaged community with a strong sense of spirit! The building offers many different types of community spaces including the Letts Formal Lounge which is used for large events and classes, as well as the Sky Lounge, a multi-purpose entertainment and program space that has some of the most beautiful views of the city.

The building is separated in the lobby into a North and South section, with a Resident Assistant, Lounge, and Study Area on each wing of the floor. One floor of Letts Hall is designated as an all-female floor. Another floor is designated to our Health & Wellness Living Learning Community. Students within this community will participate in a collaborative experience around the topics of Health & Wellness and will interact most with the University Wellness Center.

In addition to our Resident Assistants, Letts is home of the Letts, Clark and Roper Resident Director (RD) and an Assistant Resident Director (ARD). The Letts/Anderson Quad is central meeting spot for South Campus residents with seating areas and large trees.
