Tarr Hall, named for Edith Vosburgh Tarr, a graduate of the Academy in 1903 and the mother of three Cornell graduates, was originally a women's residence, but in September 1971 became a men's hall (see Pauley Hall). In the Fall of 2009, Tarr became a co-ed residence hall.
Located in the "tri-hall area" of campus, Tarr is home to approximately 75 first-year students.
Tarr Hall is part of a major renovation of several of our residence halls. Learn more about the residence hall renovations.
