Located in the heart of campus, the houses are awarded to a faculty member, whose multi-year assignment is to plan and host a variety of experiences exploring a designated theme.
Faculty-in-Residence events feature noteworthy professionals—from authors and artists, to musicians and entrepreneurs, to politicians, and scientists—and enable students to interact with, listen to, and often dine with an invited speaker.
The patios at Hartley and Garret Houses are available on request, weather permitting, for instructors wishing to experiment with an outdoor classroom setting. The Hartley House patio table seats six while the Garrett House patio table seats twelve. Both houses can arrange tables for groups up to 30. White boards are available. To reserve the patios, contact the the Faculty-in-Residence.
