World War I delayed construction of this women's dormitory, which had been designed several years earlier. The first structure on the new campus, it closes the northern end of the complex. The long, rectangular Georgian Revival building stands three stories tall. A wide Ionic portico that rises to the top of the second story fronts the main facade, while slightly narrower, but equally tall, porticoes center each short end. The building was renovated in the 1990s by a Pittsburgh firm.
