Around The Hall

Vandergriff Hall, named after former Arlington mayor Tom Vandergriff, is a student favorite for its proximity and convenience to the amenities students want on campus.

Located in the College Park District on the east side of campus, the hall is steps away from Panera Bread and Pie 5, two of the destinations in the District. Vandergriff Hall’s student lounge has everything to help you relax with an outdoor BBQ, as well as a pool table, poker table, and table tennis.

Hang out in the many lounges located on the floors, or hang out on the outside patios with great views of Spaniolo Drive and College Park Center.
