Turner Hall

Situated on Fire Hill above Harris Amphitheater, Whittier's newest residence hall boasts a spectacular panoramic view of the Los Angeles basin. Near the Graham Athletic Center, Turner Hall houses about 180 upperclassmen. The lounge features a fireplace and cable television. The ground floor has a kitchen. The facility offers residents five enclosed study rooms and a 24-hour computer lab. A professional staff member lives in Turner Hall on the first floor.


Dedicated in 1993, Turner Hall is named for Wallace Turner '27, a former trustee and one of Whittier College's major benefactors.
