Inside The Halls

Situated in the heart of campus, Harper/Elliott is a coed, apartment-style residence hall. Built in 1837, Harper was constructed to accommodate increased enrollment and then used as a hospital when the classes were temporarily suspended in March 1862. Built in 1848, Elliott was the first of the historic buildings to undergo extensive remodeling during the Horseshoe Restoration Program in the 1970's.

In 2011, Harper/Elliott was renovated to include all new interior furnishings such as flooring, kitchen and bathroom cabinets, appliances and furniture. Each apartment also has a washer and dryer. The 48 residents of Harper/Elliott live in two- and three-bedroom units that feature a living room and full kitchen.
