Residence Halls

Ruter Hall

Martin Ruter Hall is a first-year men’s hall on the west side of campus, housing 92 residents and student staff members in two-person rooms with community-style bathrooms.

Martin Ruter Hall, a residence hall for men, was erected in 1955 in honor of Martin Ruter, a pioneer Methodist missionary, and educator. Funds for the building were provided by the Central Texas, Southwest Texas and Texas Annual Conferences of the United Methodist Church.
