Geneva Hall is home to 50 first-year, sophomore, junior and senior men in doubles and singles. The residence is located on South Main Street, directly across from Seneca Lake, on the outer edge of the Hobart Quad.
The building has a study/TV lounge, laundry facilities, a game room and a bathroom on each floor. All of the rooms are equipped with full telephone, cable, and computer/Internet access.
Geneva Hall was newly renovated for the fall of 1998, with new floors (carpet and tile), paint, loftable furniture, new bathrooms and upgraded lounge space. Further renovations occurred in 2004 and again in the summer of 2007, which included upgrading the lounges and the installation of a Plasma Screen TV in the main lobby.
Geneva Hall, built in 1822, was the first building at Hobart College. It was named after the city of Geneva because of the citizens’ support of the College when it was founded.
