Cassell Hall is American Universities newest residence hall as of Fall 2013. Cassell Hall houses Sophomore, Junior, and Senior students in 4 person or 6 person suite- style housing. Each suite had a common living area furnished with a couch, coffee table, dinner table, and chairs as well as individual bathrooms for the suite. Each room in the suite is furnished with a desk, chairs, standard twin bed, two sets of drawers, and a wardrobe.
Cassell Hall recognizes the Cassell family and their philanthropic gift to the residence hall construction. Jack Cassell's connection to AU runs very deep. Cassell is not only a supporter of American University, but also is a SOC/BA ’77 and currently sits on the board of trustees.
