Hallett Hall is a part of East Complex, just across Eighth Street from the main part of campus, and was completed in 1968.

East Complex is composed of Hallett and Erickson halls, which accommodate 230 students each. Hallett Hall is a popular choice among business majors and student-athletes because it is connected to Grant Center, home of the Offutt School of Business, and is near the athletic facilities. Hallett is coed by floor and has separate floors for first-year and returning students.

Hallett Hall is named for Jessie Fern Hallett. She and her husband, Ernest, of Crosby, Minn., were major benefactors of the college.
