What is Gooch/Dillard Like?
Gooch/Dillard consists of nine four-floor buildings with newly renovated two-story, air-conditioned suites that house approximately 610 first-year students. Suites accommodate six to ten students on two levels, typically in double-occupancy bedrooms. Each suite has a furnished living area and bath facilities. There is an upperclass Resident Advisor for every three to five suites (for every 17-27 first-year residents).
How the Houses Got Their Names
New Orleans-native Hardy Cross Dillard served as Assistant Dean and Dean of the School of Law. He was the James Monroe Professor of Law when he retired from the faculty in January 1970 to begin a five-year term on the International Court of Justice at the Haague, Netherlands.
Born in Roanoke, Va., Robert Kent Gooch was a professor of political science from the 1920s, a contributor to the Political Science Quarterly, and grand marshal for the University until his retirement in 1964.
