Mallon House is a student residence located near the intersection of Avenue N and 17th Street, west of main campus.

Residence Life classifies the two-story small house as a part of "Four West."

The house was built for members of the men's social group, the Ravens, that later became members of the Gamma Tau chapter of the Kappa Alpha fraternity.

During the 1980s the house appeared on campus maps as Mallon House, but also as one of two "Athletic Dorms" (presumably housing for football players utilizing nearby Pritchett Field).
