Hughes Hall

Hughes Hall.

Hughes Hall is home to first-year students, housing approximately 300 students living together within the same living units and floors.

About The Hall

The building has a traditional residence hall design with corridor-style rooms and shared floor bathrooms. Each floor community has a central lounge space with a kitchen, lounge furniture, and television for students to study or socialize with their community. Each floor also has a laundry room. The building is connected to McDowell Hall, a sophomore building. Nearby is the Woods Brown Amphitheatre, a peaceful and eventful green space for the AU community. The Cassell Fitness Center, open to all AU students, is a short walk away.

Personalize Your Room

Decorative and additional items can be purchased from the HRL coordinated vendors through our Personalize Your Room webpage.  Each room will include the furniture noted on this webpage.

In-Hall Staff

In-hall staff include resident assistants (RAs) and a community director (CD). Hughes’ RAs live in the building, acting as peer educators and helping residents connect to their community. The Hughes community has one CD, a professional staff member who works with RAs to foster a living-learning environment to bridge the academic and residential experience.

Virtual Tours

Our virtual tours are representative of a given room type. Each space varies based on room sizes and dimensions. Each virtual tour includes some decorative items and a MicroFridge to show what the room looks like when occupied, but these items are not included in rooms. Bed lofts, visible in the double and triple room configurations, will not be included in rooms for the 2020-2021 academic year.
