Medbery Hall is home to 54 upperclass Hobart students living in singles and two-room doubles (a double room with an attached living room), all equipped with full telephone, cable and Internet access.
Medbery frames one side of the Quad, and its central location makes it one of the most active dorms on campus, especially during the warm weather months.
The building has a lounge, laundry facilities and a kitchen and is divided vertically, purposely designed without long central halls like the other traditional residence halls. This was to prevent “rioting” or “high-jinx of the students, such as rolling cannon balls down the hall.”
Built of brick in 1901, Medbery Hall was designed by the same architects that designed Coxe Hall. The building used to house unmarried Hobart faculty.
