University House


The on-campus home for the Chancellor and his/her family, the University House is located at the edge of the lagoon, close to the original residence halls. With an enclosed courtyard, wide roof overhangs, and a patio with a view of the lagoon, the University House exemplifies the indoor/outdoor living possibilities on campus. The adjacent Centennial House is used for events.
