Ropp Hall

Old Ropp entrance

The exterior entrance to Old Ropp faces the Little Riley Creek.

Ropp is the largest residence hall at Bluffton University and houses 231 students.

A large central lounge known as “The Pit” is located near the main entrance to the building and is a popular gathering place for students. Six of the nine floors in Ropp Hall have study lounges and kitchenette facilities on the floor, while a larger, fully equipped kitchen is located off first Ropp Annex. Two hall computer labs are also located in the building. The ground floor of Ropp Hall has an exercise room and is home to the Bluffton Centre for Academic Excellence for students in the honors program as well as the Health Center.

Built in 1914, Ropp was the first residence hall for women at Bluffton University. A second wing, Ropp Annex, was added in 1958, while a third wing, Ropp Addition, was completed in 1967.

Ropp will house both men and women, on separate floors, during the 2018-19 academic year.
