Welcome to Cornell and Mary Donlon Hall!
Mary Donlon Hall – named for one of the country’s first female judges, a Cornell alumna – is known for its sociable ambiance and close-knit community. While an older building, Donlon stands out compared to other first year buildings because of the community that is built here. Donlon is seen as one of the most social dorms, you will get to know most of the people in the halls either through studying in the communal lounge on the floor, running into each other in the bathrooms or while going to or leaving class. The building also has an expansive, light-filled first floor with seating areas, a lounge, and a library. The theater-style multipurpose room, with its large-screen TV, is a popular place for students to hang out and play Dance-Dance-Revolution, watch Monday Night Football, and have movie nights.
