Buckland Hall

Buckland Hall

Buckland Hall is the second of two residences on the south side of campus. Built in 1956, Buckland is known for it's modern architectural design. It was designed by Douglas Orr, who also designed Abbey and Torrey (formerly Lakeside). Buckland was named for Buckland, Massachusetts, the hilltown birthplace of Mary Lyon, the founder of Mount Holyoke.

Buckland Hall houses 120 students in single, double, and triple rooms on four floors and a basement. Buckland has a large modern living room and spacious rooms. It also houses a small number of Frances Perkins students, who are students of non-traditional age returning to college. Buckland shares a large dining hall with Abbey Hall. Buckland is located near Mary Woolley Hall and Chapin Auditorium (where many campus events are held), as well as Rooke Theater and Pratt Music Building. It is also near Gorse, the main student parking lot on campus.
