Kent Residence Hall

About Kent Hall

Kent Hall was dedicated on September 13, 1961, in honor of James Kent. Kent was a local attorney who served on the Supreme Court and authored the book, "Commentaries on American Law." This book is considered one of the most widely used legal references by the American Bar Association.

Beautiful Surroundings and Central Location

Kent Hall is an L-shaped, three story co-ed building divided into North and West wings.

A main entrance and entrances on both the North and West ends make for easy access to all areas of the building.

Many students find Kent Hall's central location on campus to be a very convenient aspect of living in Kent.


The first floor houses the residence hall director's office, mailroom, pay phones, and a lounge with television and vending machines. In the lower level there is a study lounge, a laundry room which is fully equipped with washers and dryers, and a newly renovated kitchenette area. Both first floor and lower level have functional fire places.
