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 sixth 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 Jefferson 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.

Year Round Living

Students are not required to vacate the residence hall during break periods, or between terms if they are already registered for the term. So, for instance, if a student has signed up for the Summer 2019 term as well as the Fall 2019-Spring 2020 term, he/she will not be required to vacate the residence hall at the conclusion of the summer term. They will be allowed to remain in the residence hall until the commencement of the fall term.

There will be no extra fees associated with remaining over breaks; the only requirement will be that residents sign up in advance so that Residence Life and Patrick Henry staff members will be aware of their presence and able to account for them.
