Tarr Hall

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.  In the Fall of 2009, Tarr began housing men and women.

Located in the "tri-hall area" of campus, Tarr is home to approximately 75 first-year students.

Tarr Hall was part of a major renovation of several of our residence halls completed for the 2015-2016 academic year.  This renovation included updates to the sleeping rooms, bathrooms,  lounge spaces, and kitchen.
