A large house with a wrap-around porch, spacious lawn, and three swings, Tank is a five- or ten-minute walk from central campus. An anchor of east Oberlin’s student community, Tank provides room to 42 students and boards up to 82. Tank was once an orphanage and now sports a variety of room plans, all of generous proportions. As members of a small housing co-op, Tankers can develop a strong sense of community, and parties are not uncommon. The kitchen is equipped to prepare meat, though vegetarian food often provides the base of Tank's cuisine.
