Gund Commons, found on the North end of campus, houses Gund Dining Hall, Gund Game Room, Gund Ballroom, and the Gund Computer Lab. Jessica Roesler Gund Commons was named after the wife of George Gund, former president of the Cleveland Trust Company and the Cleveland Institute of Art. Construction began in 1968 and the Commons was dedicated on May 30, 1970. Gund Commons was to serve the needs of the new Coordinate College for Women, which anticipated the enrollment of 650 women in the 1972-1973 school year. The building was designed by The Perkins & Will Partnership of Chicago and served as an integral part of the Women's College. It served as the entrance to the Coordinate College and was designed to permit Kenyon's sister college to create an identity of its own. The building was designed to be both informal and feminine in nature. It was to provide a place for dining, study, and recreation. The total cost of construction was $1.5 million.

Although it is considered the ugliest dorm on campus by many students, it is well loved by its alumni, many of whom refer to themselves as "Gund Survivors." The room dividers that mark Gund as unique are both hated and loved by those who live there. [ [http://www.kenyonhistory.net/kcpedia/Gund_Hall Gund Hall] ]
