Woodbury Bunting-Cobb Hall is a traditional residence hall built in 1959. It is named for Mary Putnam Woodbury (1846-1914), the woman credited with establishing the first free circulating library in New Jersey in 1883. Her husband was James Neilson (Neilson Dining Hall). Woodbury was active in many New Brunswick charitable organizations and is responsible for starting kindergarten and manual training classes in the city. Woodbury Bunting-Cobb is home to the Women in STEM and Douglass SEBS Environmental living-learning communities.
