Roble Hall is one of Stanford's oldest and most historic residences. Constructed in 1917, it is the largest (not to mention the best) four-class dorm on campus, holding about 310 students, about half of whom are freshmen. Originally a women's residence, Roble was designed by George Kelham, who also designed the San Francisco Public Library, and is considered an architectural jewel of the Beaux-Arts movement.
Roble is the oldest continuously used dormitory at Stanford. It takes its name from the Spanish word for the valley oak trees that dot the Stanford campus. Roble offers a welcoming and fun-loving environment for living and learning at Stanford.
