THE CROSS CANYON
Bragdon, Chittick, Griffin, McKinley, and Woodbridge
These five residence halls, across a lake that divides the campus, are set in a grassy, wooded area. Four of these buildings, Griffin, McKinley, Chittick, and Woodbridge, were named for early faculty members. Each residence has a full kitchen, laundry room, and spacious tri-level social room with a fireplace. In addition, large balconies on the third floor look out toward the canyon. All of these residences are coed by alternate rooms and include singles, divided and undivided doubles, and divided triples. Each residence houses approximately 28 primarily first-year students. The small size and physical composition of the cross canyon buildings foster a strong sense of community among the residents.
Bragdon Hall, built in 1998 and named after a former Reed president, is the newest of the cross canyon dorms. Bragdon houses 65 students and has spacious rooms, hallways, and lounges. Fully equipped kitchens are conveniently located near the lounges. Bragdon features a laundry room, a storage room, and an indoor bike storage area.
