Poteat Hall is located on the south end of campus, and is reserved for freshman residents. It is a co-ed residence hall, but female and male residents live on different floors with separate bath facilities. 

Built in 1958, Poteat Hall was remodeled in 2007. The residence hall is named after Edwin McNeill Poteat, who served as the school's president from 1903 to 1918. The hall is among five residence halls that make up South Housing, and is in a prime location for students to take advantage of the green space on E Field. The space features a sand volleyball and basketball court.
