We look forward to welcoming students and community members back into Upper House as soon as conditions allow.


Reserve your space at Upper House to study.

We warmly welcome students to Upper House for Open Study, 10:00 AM – 4:00 PM, Monday through Friday. Upper House will be closed for open study this semester on November 11 & 12, and December 2. You can be assured we have gone the extra mile to set up space as a safe, comfortable haven for studying. Seating is available in the Grand Hall and the Porch.
