West House

Located on The Ingram Commons, West House provides modern features in a classic structure. The building was completely renovated in 1986 and received new finishes and furnishing in the summers of 2005 and 2006. West houses approximately 112 first-year men and women on separate floors, mostly in traditional double rooms. A resident adviser lives on each floor. 

The Faculty Head of House lives in an apartment on the first floor. Also located on the first floor is a large laundry, two seminar rooms, music practice rooms, a study area, and a full-sized kitchen for the House.

West House was built in 1922.
