Located on the East side of campus, the eight-story Studebaker East Residence Hall houses around 430 students yearly. The building went through an extensive renovation in 2012, creating space in the residence hall for two-story lounges, study bubbles, a fitness room, a craft room, and a Multipurpose Room. New for the 2022-2023 Academic year, Studebaker East is home to the Health Professions and Kinesiology Living-Learning Communities.

Studebaker East is coed and has semi-private bathrooms (a bathroom shared by a small number of students). Furniture within the hall is stackable, allowing students to truly tailor their living space. The hall has central air conditioning as well as rectangular double rooms for students.

Studebaker East Hall, also known across campus as "Stu East" is home to residents from all over the world. It also houses many students who compete on varsity athletic teams at Ball State University. Stu East is the residence hall that is traditionally open year-round and available for on-campus students to stay in during the University's break periods.
