Ball Hall

Recently renovated Ball Hall is home to 90 students and several first-year Living Learning Communities (LLC). The first-year LLCs are meeting places for students to come together and collaboratively construct new ideas, traditions, and experiences. They are designed to help students succeed through their first year at Whittier College and beyond. These communities foster social well-being, academic enrichment, and individual growth, by providing each student with a sense of belonging on campus.

The double rooms in Ball Hall are 15.6' X 15.6'. The lounge area has a piano and cable television, a kitchen and a fireplace. Recent renovations in Ball Hall include kitchen, laundry room, and bathroom improvements, furniture upgrades in all main lounges, construction of new classrooms, and installation of wireless Internet. Eco-friendly elements include water-saving toilets, low-flow shower heads, energy-saving light bulbs, and each hall has its own recycling bins.


With a mid-century design and central location, the Dr. Frank Irvin Ball Resident Hall was completed in August 1966.
