Seth Low Hall is a Teachers College-owned residential building at 106 Morningside Drive that serves as faculty housing. Curiously, it is the only building on Morningside Heights honoring Seth Low, the President of Columbia University (Low Library honors Low's father, Abiel Abbot Low.)

History

Seth Low Hall was built by private developers as Janus Court in 1910. In the [[1919]-1920 fiscal year, Teachers College purchased it for $176,000 (along with Bancroft Hall for $257,000) to satisfy the booming demand for student housing.[1][2]
