McGill Hall

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.
