Hamlin Hall

Hamlin Hall

Quick Facts


One of six residential dormitories, Hamlin Hall stands a full nine stories, matching neighboring Vandenberg Hall in structural if not visual height (Hamlin was built at the bottom of a small ravine, thereby making it appear "shorter" than the surrounding buildings).  It is in use primarily by freshman students and features the most austere exterior and interior architecture of the dormitories.

Originally intended for completion in the spring of 1968 to accommodate student residents the following fall, the construction of Hamlin Hall was delayed due to a buildings trades strike.
