Bishop Hall

Bishop Hall was built in 1911-12 as Miami's second women's residence hall. A full building renovation was completed in 2013. The hall was named after Miami University's first president, Robert Hamilton Bishop who held office from 1824 to 1841. From the time it was built, portions of Bishop were used as a hospital and in 1918 the whole building was needed due to the influenza epidemic. Today, the hall houses upper-class students. Bishop Hall is located on central quad and is conveniently close to King Library and is across the quad from Bell Tower Place in Ogden Hall, and a short distance from the Armstrong Student Center.
