Tompkins Hall remains the most beautiful dormitory at Elmira College. The use of the materials is in strict accord with charming examples of old manor houses and colleges in England. English casement windows have Gothic charm. The main towers, with their open passage of Gothic vaultings, are also impressive. The building improved the visual luxury of the campus and facilitated its growth.
