Longino Hall was one of nine dormitory units in the Departmental Dorm complex, located at the northeastern corner of Avenue J and 20th Street.

The three-story residence was classified as the foreign language dorm, or building C. The dorm maintained a cafeteria for many years, and later was home to nomadic university offices that were shifted around campus - notably Housing Maintenance (c. 1993) and Residence Life (c. 1997).

It was demolished to make way for AB4.
