Built in 1988, Knott Hall’s construction was funded by Henry J. Knott Sr., who named the hall after his wife, Marion Burk Knott. Knott Hall was originally a women’s residence hall, but after extensive construction in the Main Building, administrative offices from that building were moved into Flanner and Grace Halls—which were originally men’s residence halls—requiring the women of Knott to relocate to McGlinn Hall across campus. Knott Hall was converted to a men’s residence hall in the fall of 1997. It is now home to 240 men.
Knott on the Knoll, the dorm’s signature event, is a weekend of music hosted for the entire campus community.
