Facade of Swallow Robin

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. This hall has changed and evolved over the years and recently has become an all-women’s dorm, now nicknamed "Robin." 

Robin houses 70 female students, making it the smallest hall on campus—and accentuating its close-knit community. The dorm is split between three floors allowing the women to connect in smaller groups. As a hall, they come together to create a homelike atmosphere throughout the building. Residents get involved by participating in pick-a-dates and on-campus events but connect with one another through regular floor dinners.
