Gates Hall

Gates Hall is recognizable by its tower, the northern of the two towers that are a central feature of the north campus range of residences, at Park Street and Ninth Avenue. Resembling the gate of Hampton Court Palace, it aligns with a parallel gate that is part of Rose Hall on East Campus. It therefore, with Rawson to the immediate south, forms part of the part of the “equinox pathway”: early risers on the morning of the vernal equinox can view the sunrise directly to the east through two campus archways - the Rose Hall arch and the Rawson/Gates Tower arch.

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.
