Rhodes-Garrett-Hamiel Hall



RGH is a fully updated building that still has the charm, character, and feel of the residence halls of yesteryear. This hall is big on tradition, and the building style emphasizes its unique atmosphere. RGH features a massive courtyard known for its attractiveness and prominence for social functions.

RGH is the only living area on campus where the rooms open onto an inside hallway — a traditional “double-loaded corridor” design. This design encourages resident interaction and makes for a very strong sense of community amongst a diverse group of residents ranging from freshman to graduate students.

Convenience has always been something students are attracted to when choosing RGH. With multiple lots to choose from, residents can usually find parking without much hassle. RGH is located across from the Barnes & Noble at NMSU Bookstore & Café and is within a 5-minute walking distance to Taos Restaurant (the student dining hall), both of the main campus libraries, the Admissions, Registrar, Financial Aid, Cashier, and Housing main offices, and much more! It even has an assortment of off-campus dining and shopping options just across the street!

RGH sponsors workshops on developing leadership skills, and other great events such as the annual haunted house in the RGH basement. Whether it is the unique building style, the vast amenities, the convenience, or the fun, RGH remains a facility that residents choose to return to year after year. 

RGH is home to various Living Learning Communities including Engineering, Honors, Innovation Den (iD), and Pre-Pharmacy.
