Chancellor's Residence

The stately colonial home that serves as the Chancellor’s Residence at Troy University was constructed in 1962.

The house has been occupied by the families of President Frank Ross Stewart, Dr. Ralph W. Adams, and, currently, Dr. Jack Hawkins, Jr.

Constructed of terracotta brick, the residence with its columned portico serves not only as home to TROY’s chief executive officer, but also as the setting for many University social functions. Special guests have ranged from heads of state, ambassadors, generals, and admirals, to world-renowned literary figures, college presidents, and international dignitaries representing dozens of nations.

The first floor of the residence features an abundance of large windows and traditional architectural details in the living room, sun porch, and formal dining room, providing a pleasant backdrop for family and guests. In addition to serving as a place to entertain special guests, the Chancellor’s Residence is also the venue for luncheons with members of the faculty, a reception for student leaders, and breakfast receptions for graduates and their families. Each academic year, more than a thousand students visit the residence for various events.

The residence exudes the grace and charm of the old South, while serving the needs of a modern University of the 21st Century.
