Low Rise 6 and Low Rise 7 are arranged with several of the Program Houses in a neighborhood enclave on North Campus, all connected by brick pathways that traverse beneath welcoming trellises.
These pleasant, quiet, brick and glass buildings provide a home that's both modern and cozy. Each of the Low Rises has a main lounge equipped with a working fireplace, where on wintry nights residents can gather around and make s'mores, enjoy popcorn and hot chocolate, watch films with the faculty member in residence, or just hang out and talk about what's important in life.
