Stocking Hall was the second building to be constructed on Wing Drive, after Wing Hall which is Stocking's neighbor to the south. Both Stocking and Wing are in the Beaux-Arts tradition. They also share similar materials: brown brick walls, limestone trim, and dark gray, slate-covered pitched roof. Stocking is three stories high plus the roof, and it is fifteen bays wide. It has projecting pavilions on either end. The second and third stories are linked by brick pilasters which have stone bases and capitals. The first and second floors have limestone string courses. The cornice is plain (terracotta?). The Mansard roof is punctuated by seven dormers, four capped by triangular and three by segmental pediments. A brick and limestone-trimmed extension is attached to the center rear. Buildings and Properties added to this extension in 1964. The interior was refurbished by Ulrich Franzen in 1968. The Dairy Building was added to the rear extension of Stocking Hall. It occupies the corner of Tower Rd and Judd Falls Rd. The tan brick is similar, though lighter in tone, to that of Stocking and other State Buildings. The windows and exposed roof flashing are dark brown metal rather than limestone. The rectangular strip windows are deeply set. The corners of the Dairy Building are rounded. There is an entrance off Tower Rd and another off the lot on the south side.
