Hood Residence Hall

Hood was dedicated on March 13, 1970, in memory of Diana R. Hood, a former residence hall director and Dean of Women from 1964 to 1969.

A Place to Take in the Scenery

Hood Hall is a nine story high rise, suite building with coed living conditions. There are four suites on each floor for either six or eight people. A main entrance on the West side makes for easy access to all areas of the building. All upper floors have a great view of the college campus, Lake Champlain, or the Adirondacks.


The first floor houses the residence director's office and mailroom, with vending area conveniently located in the lobby. There is a lounge with a television, and a small computer lab/study area. In the lower level there is a laundry room which is fully equipped with washers and dryers. All floors in Hood have their own floor lounge with a full kitchen and television viewing area. It was renovated and reopened in August 2012. Hood is close to Sibley Hall, one of the academic facilities on campus.

Fun Things to Do Near Hood Hall
