Tolman Hall

Located on the central campus, Tolman offers easy access to dining and classroom facilities. It houses 102 upperclass men in single and double rooms. Residents live on the second, third and fourth floors. One Resident Adviser lives on each floor. A faculty member and his spouse currently live in an apartment on the second floor.

Constructed shortly after World War II and recently completely renovated, Tolman Hall is a modified collegiate gothic residence hall facing Alumni Lawn.

Tolman Hall is named after Dr. Herbert C. Tolman, Classics scholar and Dean of the College of Arts and Science. Dr. Tolman was also the founder of the Vanderbilt chapter of Phi Beta Kappa.
