Named for Mary and James Beall, whose gift made the building possible, this hall was dedicated on February 2, 2001. The two-story building is really two buildings in one with rooms available on Side One for females and on Side Two for males. Beall houses a total of 90 residents and is located on the northwest end of the campus, next to Independence Village, a campus apartment-style housing complex, and the intramural fields. It is also within easy walking distance to the dining hall, Mayborn Campus Center, and the academic buildings.
The design of the building is unique and features super suite units that the students refer to as "flats". Each of the flats is made up of a living area, kitchenette, dining space, three bedrooms, and three private bathrooms. The bedrooms are assigned as double occupancy. This facility also includes two lobby/TV areas, two computer labs, and two laundry rooms where laundry can be done free of charge.
Resident Assistants are assigned to each floor of the building and the Resident Director lives on-site. Building security includes a staff member on duty each evening until closing and a card access system for entry into the building after doors are locked.
