Building History: 

Loose Hall was dedicated to two Iowans — Francelia Spitzer Loose, a schoolteacher, and her physician husband, Dr. David N. Loose, although neither were alumni of Grinnell. Loose Hall was one of the first residence halls on campus to bring men and women together on the same floor after coeducational living was adopted in 1968.

Description: 

The largest South Campus residence hall, Loose Hall features laundry facilities, five kitchens, and two student lounges. The spacious Loose Lounge houses a piano, fireplace, television, and a variety of furniture easily adapted for meetings, events, and presentations. The rooms are assigned as singles, doubles, and triples, and gender neutral housing is available.
