Kent Hall

Kent hall is an L-shaped, 3-story, co-ed building divided into two wings. The building reopened in 2020 after a full renovation.

Kent Hall

Dedicated September 13, 1961, in honor of James Kent, Kent Hall is currently being completely renovated. Kent was an attorney who served on the NY Supreme Court and authored the book, “Commentaries on American Law.” This book is considered one of the most widely used legal references by the American Bar Association.


Currently under renovation — will be re-opened to welcome students in the fall of 2020.
