Hallowell Hall, 1981
Hallowell Hall, formerly Hillside Dormitory North, was built in 1981 to provide extra housing for upperclassmen. It was rededicated in May, 1988, to honor Dr. Burton Crosby Hallowell, president of Tufts from 1967 to 1976.
Originally opened in September, 1981, Hillside Apartments provided Tufts students with apartment style living in an on campus environment. The three million dollar project housed 216 students in kitchen-equipped apartments, designed for six to ten students each.
Famous around Tufts for flooding during heavy rains, even after major renovations during the summer of 1999, Hallowell Hall remains in use as an apartment style dormitory for upperclassmen.
