Joe Rosenfield ’25 Center

The Rosenfield Center is the central gathering place at Grinnell. In addition to space for a range of campus offices, it contains the central dining room and kitchens of the College, the Spencer Grill, the Crady Mail Room, recreational areas and lounges, a multipurpose room, smaller meeting rooms, classrooms, and a gallery. The Rosenfield Center is named after longtime Grinnell College trustee and benefactor Joe Rosenfield ’25.

Harris Center

The Harris Center is an "event" facility, including a concert hall, a cinema, two concession areas, and an informal lounge. The Grinnell Outdoor Recreation Program (GORP) office and equipment room are also located in the Harris Center. The Harris Center was designed to house large all-campus functions and weekend student activities. The Harris Center serves as a gathering place for student activities such as films, concerts, parties, talent shows, and novelty acts.

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.
