Lincoln Hall is the second red stone building designed by Charles Babcock for the Arts Quad. While the front and side facades are of red stone, the rear is constructed of brick in an effort to keep costs of construction down. The building has a long rectangular central section with projecting three bay wings off the north and south ends. The building contains four stories with a slightly projecting pavilion with a steep gable in the center of the facade with gabled dormers on either side, followed by a hipped roof wings at each end of the central section. The building also features horizontal bands of smooth cut stone separating each floor, and off-centered Richardsonian Romanesque arched entryways supported by columns on pedestals.
