Atwater Hall (1964-present)

Atwater Hall

One of the ten buildings that made up Dickinson College’s Fraternity Quadrangle, Atwater Hall (Quad 7) was first opened to students in September 1964, serving as the residence of the Alpha Chi Rho fraternity. The building began serving as a general residence hall in 1990 after that fraternity had moved out.

In 1992, the hall was named in honor of Jeremiah Atwater, the third president of Dickinson College, who served in that post from 1809 until 1815. The building was designed by Howell Lewis Shay and Associates, and cost approximately $200,000 to build.
