Olin Hall

Olin Residence Hall, located adjacent to the Washington University School of Medicine, provides complete residential services. The Residence Hall was made possible by generous gifts from Mr. Spencer T. Olin, alumni, and friends of the School of Medicine.

Olin Hall provides housing for approximately 200 men and women, which includes medical and graduate students in the School of Medicine, and those enrolled in Physical Therapy, Occupational Therapy, Program in Audiology and Communication Science, Genetic Epidemiology, and the Division of Biology & Biomedical Sciences.

Olin Hall is planned for the convenience of medical and paramedical science students, and every effort is made to provide an atmosphere which not only aids in meeting study obligations, but also in recognizing privileges as graduate students.
