Tompkins Hall, named for Elmira College Trustee Sarah Wey Tompkins, was built in 1928. This building houses upper-class students. Double, single, and single adjoining rooms are available. Some rooms boast working fireplaces and bay windows for a spectacular view of campus. The Terrace Level of Tompkins Hall houses the Speech and Hearing Clinic. Tompkins Hall is listed on the National Register of Historic Places.
The Twin Towers were opened in 1967 and 1968.
Serving as upper-class residence halls, there are eight floors in each tower. Each floor has four suites, each with a common room, two doubles and a single. The buildings each have four pantries where students can cook and eat. The main lounge, which is also the main entrance to the building, has a large TV, piano, and bean bag chairs, as well as traditional seating, which students use for studying and hanging out with friends. Downstairs, there is a second lounge space with a TV, which students predominantly use for watching movies with friends.
The Cottages were built in 1948 to provide housing for Elmira College faculty members. Now, these four apartment-style buildings offer housing to upper-class students in one- and two-bedroom apartments that provide full kitchens. Students living in Cottages have the option of cooking for themselves.
