Cook Hall is one of the beautiful historic mansions located on the waterfront of New College's campus.
Built in the 1920s for Hester Ringling, Charles Ringling’s daughter, Cook Hall is one of the impressive historic mansions located on the waterfront of New College’s campus.
A covered walkway connects Cook Hall to the main mansion next door, now called College Hall.
The building is named after A. Werk Cook, a benefactor and trustee of the college.
Currently, Cook Hall hosts the offices of the Division of Humanities, and the office of Research Programs and Services. It is also home to the college’s President, Provost, and vice president of Finance.
