Dickens Hall is one of Belmont's newest residence halls and opened it's doors in August 2012.  It is named after the Chairman of the Board of Trustees, Marty Dickens.  This building is a new hybrid of apartment style and traditional hall style.  Dickens Hall has been designated for the rising sophomore class.

Dickens Exterior

Dickens hall features four and five bedroom apartments with a kitchen area and bathroom.  The kitchen has a full size stove and refrigerator, microwave, and table and chairs.  Each bedroom is fully furnished with a bed, wardrobe, desk, chair, and dresser.  The living room area has 1 couch, 2 arm chairs, coffee table, and TV stand.  The flooring is tile throughout the apartment.

Laundry services are available on the basement level.  All utilities, cable service, and internet service are included in the cost for Dickens.  Students who live in Dickens are required to have a meal plan. 


Dickens Hall residents are supported by 6 Resident Assistants (RAs) .  Each RA has gone through extensive training in order to be a resource to our residents.  RA’s create social and educational opportunities right here in the complex through programming and community building efforts.  

The RA’s are supervised by one full-time, live-in professional staff member, known as the Residence Director.  The RD is trained in crisis management, acts as a resource to the residents of the complex, and oversees the administrative aspects of the complex such as maintenance and discipline.  The RD maintains regular hours in their office, located near the front desk.  The RD also lives in an apartment within the complex.  

The front desk will be open during visitation hours.
