William Nichols, one of the first trained architects to work in North Carolina, designed the Old West dormitory. It matched the university’s first residence hall, Old East. Nichols added a story to Old East to make it the same height as Old West. In 1844, architect Alexander J. Davis lengthened the building and on its north end attached a façade with windows and pilasters.
