East Hall is a warm and inviting home to upperclass students who wish to live in a responsible living environment. East Hall, is one of two (Tuve Hall being the other) responsible living Residence Halls at Augustana in which students are given the freedom to discuss and implement their own policies regarding quiet hours and intervisitation.
East Hall is a quiet and relaxed atmosphere, creating an environment conducive to both study and socialization. East is a unique building full of character which is listed on the National Register of Historic Places. It was built in 1905 when it was originally named Ladies Hall and renovated in 1980 when it became known as East Hall. The front of the building features a large old-fashioned porch with a swing and lounge chairs. When you walk into the building you are greeted with a spacious lobby that has a comforting atmosphere. East Hall also has a kitchen, computer lab, laundry facilities, several lounge areas, and a game room. One of the most unique aspects of East Hall can be found in each of its 49 rooms. No two rooms are alike in size or layout. The top floor features vaulted ceilings in select rooms and the second floor offers connected student rooms, providing for a more suite-styled feel than a traditional Residence Hall room. Each room is also wired for data and cable connections.
