Harris Hall

Harris Hall has a panoramic view of Los Angeles and hosts special interest co-educational housing. Harris features self-designed theme houses — athletics, societies, social issue groups, and more. All students are open and encouraged to apply to create a theme house for Harris residence. Harris houses approximately 150 students. Each unit is air conditioned and carpeted. And, each unit has a kitchen upstairs and downstairs with a dishwasher on the first floor; the lounges have fireplaces and cable television. The Harris Hall complex is located near the Athletics Center.

History

Consisting of four buildings, Harris Hall was completed in 1989. It was funded by a gift from college trustee William V. Harris Jr '55 and his wife, Harriet, and Harris Brothers, Ltd.
