Mandelle Hall

North and South Mandelle Halls (often called the Mandelles or the 'Delles) were constructed in 1923. North and South Mandelle are separate, smaller halls that connect to form one large building. The Mandelles are at the south end of Prospect Hill. The building was originally called Hillside, but it was renamed in 1930 in honor of Mary B. Mandelle. The Mandelles are notable because they resemble the older halls that surround Skinner Green, but are set across Lower Lake.

North Mandelle houses 113 students on four floors and a basement and South Mandelle houses 90 students on four floors. The Mandelles also have three two-room doubles, the first of their kind on campus. The Mandelles feature beautiful living rooms and sun rooms. As of the fall of 2014, North and South Mandelle are reserved exclusively for upperclass students.

The Mandelles are located next to 1837 Hall and near Pratt Music Building. Residents of North and South Mandelle are housed in single, double, and triple rooms. North Mandelle first floor was renovated in the summer of 2005, adding several private rooms with bathrooms along with a game room and student kitchen to be shared by residents of both halls. Additionally, a major renovation of North Mandelle took place in 2012 and included updates to student rooms and bathrooms on the upper floors.  A similar renovation of South Mandelle took place in the summer of 2013.
