Belmont U

Patton, Bear House and Potter Halls

504 views 1 month ago
Potter Hall, Bear House and Patton Hall comprise the three new freshmen residence halls. With room for more than two hundred freshmen, Potter Hall is named in honor of Virginia Frances Potter, a long time benefactor and supporter of Belmont. Patton and Bear House are the newest additions, having opened in the fall of Two Thousand and Eleven. Together, they provide housing for over four hundred freshmen. Underneath those residence halls are also a number of basement classrooms where First Year Seminar courses are held. The classroom areas are also joined to Potter through a tunnel which leads into the dorm's lobby.

All three of these freshmen residence halls are co-ed; however, men and women are separated by floor and key-card access. While the buildings are new, they cannot escape Belmont's storied history; during construction, remnants of Adelicia Acklen's original Bear House and Bowling Alley were uncovered. Tucked beneath layers of asphalt, these two structures went unnoticed for nearly 100 years, providing those who knew of them little more than mystery as to their exact location and design. Like the older freshmen residence halls, these buildings are located in the middle of campus allowing first-year students to plunge effortlessly into campus activities.
