Swallow Robin Hall
Swallow Robin Hall was built in 1916 under the famous African-American architect Samuel Plato, who has buildings that appear in the National Register of Historic Places. Though it has received significant renovations since its opening, Swallow Robin is currently the oldest residence hall on campus. It is co-ed and houses just 70 students, making it the smallest hall on campus and strengthening its close-knit, family-like feel.
Swallow Robin residents often hang out in the downstairs lobby, affectionately called the “Swabby,” which feels very much like a family room in a home away from home. Swallow Robin is known for its annual “Swalloween” open house, which draws people from all over campus, and “Copious Cookies,” where they serve thousands of cookies to the Taylor community. Residents also participate in weekly all-hall worship nights on Sundays.
