Lazier Hall honors the late William C. Lazier ’53 and Dorothy Lazier for their generous support of the College. William C. Lazier served two terms as chair of the board of trustees. The east campus residence halls were designed by William Rawn Associates to complement, but not duplicate, the dormitories President John H.T. Main built more than 90 years ago.
Lazier Hall is the southernmost of the residence halls framing the east edge of campus, and it’s distinctive curved roof softens the profile of the tallest building on campus. Constructed of white Iowa limestone, Lazier Hall is connected to the East Campus residence halls by a roofed loggia. Large windows in the first-floor lounge give the space an open, accessible feel. Lazier Hall features air conditioning, laundry facilities, four kitchens, a handicap-accessible elevator, six student lounges, and a computer lab with a printer. The rooms are assigned as singles and doubles.
