Berry Residence Hall is located on the east campus of NC State as part of a triad of buildings including Becton and Bagwell. The four-story building has a total area of 17,200 square feet and is named after Leslie Graham Berry (1878-1931).

Berry was nicknamed "Slide Rule" by his fellow civil engineering students because of his skill with the, then new, device that simplifies complex computations. Berry designed the first wind tunnel at Langley Field, which was large enough to test full-sized airplanes of the time, and organized the Southern Engineering Company. He also patented the "Berry Method" of constructing reinforced concrete buildings.
