Cole Hall (Mount Vernon Campus)

2100 Foxhall Road, NW
Washington, DC 20007

Cole Hall houses first-year students in the center of all the action that the Mount Vernon campus offers. Cole residents enjoy traditional double rooms and traditional double suites with shared bathrooms. Mount Vernon's beautiful sports complex is an easy walk across the Quad from Cole Hall. The complex includes outdoor tennis courts, a workout facility, and a seasonal, six-lane outdoor pool. Just next door is Eckles Library, allowing access to 3 different computer labs. Each Cole Hall room comes fully furnished with desks, desk chairs, dressers, and twin beds.

You can also hang out in Cole's community lounge, complete with a TV, or cook dinner with friends in the community kitchen. Laundry facilities are available in the basement. The small size of Cole Hall enables students to develop a tight knit community. Approximately 2% of the first-year class will live in Cole.

In the 2017 summer, Cole Hall will receive new furniture in all rooms.
