Loose Hall

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.

 

Main Hall

Main Hall serves as the central building of the South Campus residence halls, at the time of its opening, it included a beautiful drawing room, an inspiring Gothic dining room, and the Little Theatre. Gardner Lounge, in the basement of Main Hall, has hosted performances by Smashing Pumpkins, Nirvana, and more. Main Hall features one kitchen, a handicap-accessible elevator, laundry facilities, and three lounges, one of which contains a piano. The rooms are singles and doubles.

 

Herrick Chapel

The chapel’s interior exhibits the timber-trussed vaulted ceiling typical of the spacious Perpendicular Gothic style. Also characteristic are the high clerestory windows, which admit more light than is the case in other church styles. Seating about 700 people (630 in the nave and 70 in the balcony), the chapel is in basilica form with a narthex or vestibule on the west, broad nave with a center aisle plus side columns and aisles, and apse at the east end.

Carnegie Hall

Carnegie Hall, 1210 Park Street, is located north of Herrick Chapel. Dedicated June 13, 1905, the building is in modified Classical form with a low hipped roof, impressive cornice with dentils, red-brick walls, and quoins outlining window areas. The middle section of the facade is framed by two imposing pilasters with six engaged columns within the frame, the pilasters and columns all topped with Ionic capitals.

Read Hall

Read Hall features three student lounges, two kitchens, and a computer lounge with a printer. Rooms include singles, doubles, triples, and quads.

Rose Hall

Constructed of white Iowa limestone, Rose Hall is connected to the other East Campus halls by a roofed loggia. Its large first-floor windows open the lounge onto the expanse of Mac Field. The lounge is the setting for artwork by Sally Kuzma, Crop Rotations, that uses scanned images of kernels of corn to create kaleidoscopic patterns.
