McGill Hall

Located on the central campus, McGill offers easy access to dining and classroom facilities. It houses 102 upperclass women and men in single and double rooms. Residents live on the second, third and fourth floors. One Resident Adviser/Head Resident lives on each floor. A faculty member lives in an apartment on the first floor. The Project Coordinator, a graduate student in Philosophy, lives in the building as well.

McGill Hall is site of the McGill Project, a cooperative program with the Department of Philosophy designed to encourage interaction between faculty members and students through the discussion of controversial topics and ideas.

Constructed shortly after World War II and recently completely renovated, McGill Hall is a modified collegiate gothic residence hall facing Alumni Lawn. The building is named after Chemistry Professor John T. McGill, who came to Vanderbilt as a student in 1876 and served his alma mater for 70 years.
