Narrative:
Since it was built in 1917, Swallow Robin Hall has served as a residence hall, with service areas being located on the lower level. Nearly demolished during the 1980's, the structure was completely remodeled in 1990, allowing it to increase its residential capacity as well meet current code requirements.
