The Tolley/Brown Complex is one of the two designated First Year Hall Complexes. Tolley Hall has three stories with a full basement. Each floor is practically identical with its contents.  The basement contains a laundry room. The hall has small individualized bathrooms containing a toilet, sink, and shower.

Tolley Hall is connected to Brown  Hall  by a large lounge, that boasts ceiling-high, wall length windows that outlooks the patio and the Forest. Students from Tolley and Brown Hall enjoy a spacious meeting room for studying and a newly built outdoor patio for activities and programs with a forest backdrop. If campus dining is not in your daily activity, the lounge has its own kitchenette. If you are interested in experiencing your first and/or second year on campus set back in the Forest of Drew University, this choice may be for you.
