Freshman Female Students Only

Heron Hall room floor plan


Heron Hall is one of Belmont’s historical residence halls. It opened in 1916 and houses 95 female freshmen. It was named in honor of Susan Heron who, along with Ida Hood, established the Belmont College for Young Women. There are 48 rooms with double or triple occupancy. The front and side entrances are card accessible by Heron residents only. There are visitation hours for guests of the opposite sex who must check in at the front desk.


Heron Hall residents are supported by three Resident Assistants (RAs). There is one RA per floor. Each RA has gone through extensive training in order to be a resource to our residents. RAs create social and educational opportunities in 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 (RD). 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 the office located off the main lobby. The RD also lives in an apartment located on the first floor of the building.
