Street address: 1421 East Street
Rathje Hall is the northernmost of the East Campus residence halls. This residence hall was named to honor Frank Rathje '50 for his generosity and commitment to both the College and the town of Grinnell. Rathje Hall helps frame the east edge of campus along East Street. A roofed loggia connects the Iowa limestone halls, and a grove of trees and a new garden area border the residence halls. Ground floor public spaces are designed to encourage interaction among the students. The new residence halls were designed by William Rawn Associates to complement, but not duplicate, the dormitories President Main built more than 90 years ago.
