First-Year Neighborhoods

Upper-Division Neighborhoods

*Because Foster, Scholz, and MacNaughton have traditionally been comprised of primarily first-year students, we recognize that upper-division students may not be as familiar with or opt to choose those buildings during room selection. While we are in the process of transitioning to the neighborhood model and assessing what the needs of upper-division students may be in the FSM community, we will be offering the following incentives to students who choose rooms in Foster, Scholz, or MacNaughton for the 2019-20 academic year:

  • A room registration time slot that is within the top 50% of time slots for the 2020-2021 academic year
  • A guaranteed on-campus storage spot for Summer 2019
  • Updated common area amenities, including new furniture and televisions

Language Houses: Chinese, French, German, Russian & Spanish

Residents of the language houses are returning students who demonstrate second-year language proficiency, converse primarily in that language, and are aided by live-in language scholars and native-speaking students.

The original four houses, designed by A.E. Doyle in 1922, were once home to Reed faculty. In 2008, the Spanish House was designed to compliment A.E. Doyle's design and a plaza was added to give residents an outdoor gathering space that fosters community between the houses.
