About The Patrick Henry

The residence hall is located within the newly renovated Patrick Henry, which used to serve as a landmark hotel in downtown Roanoke. After the hotel closed, the building underwent extensive renovations and in 2011 was reopened as luxury apartments.

Students from Radford University Carilion reside on the third through fifth floors. There are three types of apartments: Studio apartments can hold up to two students; one bedroom apartments can hold up to three students; two bedroom apartments can hold up to five students. Each resident student receives one twin sized bed, one dresser, one desk, and one desk chair. Students are responsible for bringing their own kitchenware (plates, silverware, pots, pans, etc.).

Apartments in the Patrick Henry also feature hardwood floors, granite countertops, washer/dryer, and a full kitchen with stainless steel appliances (including both dishwasher and garbage disposal). Additionally, residents of the building have secure access to our dormitory floors through their RUC prox cards, on-site mail delivery from USPS/FedEx/UPS, and a fitness center featuring cardio equipment, free weights, and Xbox Kinect. Additionally, private food vendors are available on the ground level.
