Building History

Asbury Hall’s long history predates Drew University as it was built in 1834.  The building originally housed the stables of William Gibbons’ “famed thoroughbred horses.” In 1867, after Daniel Drew donated $75,000 for renovations, Asbury Hall became home to seminary students. It also housed the seminary librarian from 1901 until his replacement by a faculty member in 1913. Asbury Hall was completely rebuilt in the 1920s.

In 1931, when Drew College opened, Asbury became home to the school’s (all-male) undergraduates. In the fall of 1953, Asbury Hall began housing women students. It now serves as a co-ed hall.
