Vanderbilt Completes Renovation of Alumni Hall


Vanderbilt University's Alumni Hall was originally opened in 1925 and was recently added to the National Register of Historic Places for its architectural significance. Designed by Nashville architect Henry C. Hibbs, Alumni Hall represents the Collegiate Gothic style and was the original student center on Vanderbilt’s campus, and acted as such for nearly 50 years until Sarratt Student Center opened in 1974.

Over the years Alumni Hall has served many purposes, from the original student center to administrative offices. Currently Alumni Hall houses the Faculty Senate, the Vanderbilt Writing Studio, and the Department of Alumni Relations, among others.

The recently completed renovation maintained the integrity of the building's architectural history.  The inside spaces were updated and the terraces on the east and west sides of the building were expanded.
