Tolman Hall

  • Psychology Department
  • Education Department
  • Built in 1962


  • With more square footage than Wurster, Tolman Hall is the fourth largest classroom building on campus, after the VLSB, Dwinelle, and Evans. Due to its out of the way location in the southwestern part of campus on the edge of the College of Natural Resources, most people only know as the big thing on the right going uphill on the Perimeter Shuttle.[1]
  • While it looks OK from the outside, the interior of Tolman is hideous. Built straddling a major campus road, the second through fifth floors are bridged across the whole building. The lower floors are not. The psychology department, housed in the western half of the lower levels, is such a maze (and you thought Dwinelle was bad) that there are signs everywhere pointing out the direction that things like the stairs, elevator, and classrooms are located. To make things worse the walls, ceiling, and floor are all white, and the ceiling is low and the whole place lacks natural lighting. Makes you wonder how in the world this ended up being home to the Psychology Department. Enter at your own risk. Not responsible for lost sanity.[1]
  • In January 2003, one of four campus emergency sirens was installed on top of Tolman Hall. These sirens are tested at noon on the first Wednesday of every month.[1]
  • Places to Check Out:[1]
      1. 2320 Tolman. A room used in Fall 2002 for the internationally infamous Simpsons De-Cal class. In other words people would go watch The Simpsons and then talk about the show, for 2 credits.
      2. Tolman Psychology Lab. Numerous labs in building. You can get paid to be an experiment subject in psych experiments that are held here from time to time. Check bulletin boards around campus for details.
