Hello! I have a 2 year old Russian tortoise. He currently lives in a zoo med enclosure but he has been full grown for a while now and it is too small. We were working on getting a custom enclosure made but that fell through so I’ve decided to make one myself. I was wondering the minimum dimensions for a male Russian tort (males are smaller than females so he’s fairly small) I may be taking him to college with me so it can’t be huge but I definitely want to give him at least the minimum of what is healthy for them if not more.

I agree with Yossarian. Just put some walls and legs on a 4x8 sheet of plywood and your tortoise will be good to go.
