About Mary Lyon Hall:

Mary Lyon, fondly referred to as ML, is a charming, older dormitory on the edge of campus. Its 84 residents tend to form a strong sense of community. One special feature is the breakfast room; residents argue that it serves "the best cooked breakfast at the College." ML is served by campus shuttles, and many residents use bicycles to get to and from the heart of campus.

Residential life is a significant part of the Swarthmore experience, with 95 percent of the students living in college housing. All of the College's dorms house a diverse mix of students of different class years. Most first-year students and sophomores live with roommates. During junior and senior years, most students live in single rooms.
