Morgan Hall was dedicated on November 12, 1955 as the first single-purpose residence hall built for men in the history of the College. It was dedicated to the memory of James Henry Morgan (1857-1939), college alumnus, faculty member, dean, and president. In 1965, with the opening of the Holland Union Building, the dining hall and kitchens were closed and converted to student living space. Major renovations were completed during the summer of 2002 and provided the building with a re-orientated main entrance, now facing the Mooreland Campus, and an atrium in addition to enlarged and modernized suites.
Morgan Hall is home to approximately 160 mixed-class year students. The building features suite-style configurations of two double rooms sharing a private bathroom, or one double and one single room sharing a private bathroom. Shared lounge spaces are on each floor and kitchen facilities are on the first floor. Laundry facilities are located on the first and third floors. Morgan is located on the south west corner of the Rush campus, across High Street from the Library.
