Built in 1969, Purcell Hall is named for Piedmont alumnus Dr. Claude Purcell (’30), former Georgia State School superintendent, and his wife, Merle. Purcell Hall is a co-ed residence hall for first-year students. Each suite includes a pair of two-student rooms with a shared bath. There are common rooms and a game room, as well as a large laundry room. Purcell Hall is located next to the Mize Athletic Center as well as the athletic fields and is where students in the SAIL program live. Purcell will undergo extensive renovations in spring 2022.
