Patton Hall and Bear House opened its doors August 2010 and is one of the newest residential facility on Belmont's campus.  It houses male and female residents and the rooms are either double or triple occupancy.  Male students live on the first and second, and females living on the third, fourth, fifth and sixth floors.   The main entrance and each floor are card access only. Patton Hall & Bear House are located directly behind Heron and Pembroke Halls and are modeled after Potter Hall.


Patton and Bear House rooms measure 16' x16' and are suite style.  Rooms are furnished with 2 twin beds (height adjustable), 2 dressers, 2 wardrobes, 2 desks, and 2 chairs.  Rooms that are triple occupancy will contain 3 sets of furniture.  Internet and cable hook-ups are available in each room as well. Individual heating and air units are in each room and are controlled by the residents. Every room has tile floors.  Triple rooms have an additional set of furniture.

There is a lobby on the main entrance floor with the front desk located to the side of the lobby.  There is also a second floor lounge area for students to gather.  The laundry facilites are located in the basement and is shared with the residents of Maple Hall.  Vending machines are also located on the basement level, along with 4 classroom spaces.


Patton Hall & Bear House  residents are supported by eleven Resident Assistants.  There is one RA per wing with the exception of the sixth floor.  Each RA has gone through extensive training in order to be a resource to our residents.  RAs create social and  educational opportunities within the complex through programming and community building efforts.

The RAs 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 building such as maintenance and discipline. The RD maintains regular hours in their office located off the Main Lobby.  The RD also lives in an apartment located on the ground floor of the building.
