Leonard Hall is home to a diverse population of students, housing approximately 275 residents. Different communities are housed in Leonard, such as Washington Mentorship Program, AU Gap Program, Washington Semester Program, Delaware in D.C., International Accelerator Program, transfer students, and more!

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. A student computer lab on the first floor supports Internet and printing needs. Each floor also has a laundry room. The Cassell Fitness Center, open to all AU students, is across the street. Leonard overlooks the Woods Brown Amphitheatre, a peaceful and eventful green space for the AU community. Leonard is also home to The Hatch, a community space that provides many opportunities for social and educational events and programs.

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