Edna Holmes Hall

LC’s Newest Residence Hall: Edna L. Holmes

Lewis & Clark College is thrilled to announce the completion of Edna L. Holmes Residence Hall.
We received the Certificate of Occupancy on July 18 from the City of Portland. Dorm rooms, common areas and kitchens are currently being furnished for the hall to be ready to receive students starting August 16.

Located at the southern end of the undergraduate campus, the hall accommodates nearly 170 students and will house mostly sophomores, juniors and seniors.Built upon our commitment to responsible stewardship of resources and sustainable practices, Holmes Hall is on track to receive a LEED Gold rating.The green building features a bicycle storage room on the first floor, an outdoor fireplace and patio, a storm-water management system, and energy reduction technology, just to name a few.To learn more about the green features of this building and see videos with the design team, check out the Holmes Hall green features page.
