Chandler Hall is located on Landrum Drive between Barrett Hall and Landrum Hall. In 1930, plans were present to the Board of Visitors for a third women's dormitory to accomodate approximately 150 women in double and single rooms with suites and kitchenettes. Charles M. Robinson, the college architect at the time, designed the dormitory, which was completed in 1931 and named in honor of President J.A.C. Chandler. The building cost $152,000 to construct. It opened for use in the summer of 1931 and housed summer school students. The second and third floors of the building were available for sororities to use as well.
