Rhodes Hall is an eight-story building occupying a narrow, triangular site between Hoy Road and Cascadilla Gorge. The narrow, rectangular main facade curves to follow Hoy Road. On either end are cylindrical, glass stair towers. The articulation of the north and south facades is alternating opaque and glass bands. The entrance is a brick rectangular block set off center to the right. The windows in this block are various sizes and shapes (strip, square, round). A large horseshoe-shaped portion in brick faces the gorge on the southwest corner of the building. Its west facade has a glass cutaway which connects to Grumman and Upson Hall. The flat south facade faces Cascadilla Gorge and has small rectangular windows in horizontal rows; a projecting, vertical stair tower in glass; and four large, round cutouts at the top.
