Boliou Memorial Hall

Boliou Memorial Hall is home to the Department of Art and Art History. Completed in 1949, the building is one of the earliest examples of Mid-Century Modernism in Minnesota. Its glass and stone walls were designed as flat screens bounding the interior space of the building. In 1995, Boliou underwent an extensive renovation and expansion, yet maintained the architectural integrity of the original design.

Recreation Center

The mission of Campus Recreation at Carleton College is to provide recreation, fitness, special events, and wellness opportunities for students, faculty, and staff. We strive to enhance healthy lifestyles and well-being on the Carleton campus in a safe and welcoming environment.

Severance Hall

Severance Great Hall built in 1928, as a large event venue on the west side of campus. Severance Great Hall is connected to the Sayles Hill Campus Center. Severance Great Hall was designed to mimic Harvard University’s Gothic design at the time. The interiors were changed many times over the years and the Gothic interior design details remain the same. The alcove is particularly beautiful, as the area is framed by pillars and set off by windows on three sides. Air conditioning has help preserve the beauty.

Weitz Center for Creativity

Weitz Center for Creativity, Class of 1980 Commons is air conditioned. Basic microphones and sound equipment are provided. The Weitz Center is accessible to physically-challenged individuals by means of a ramp at the front entrance. The College took great care in selecting an architect with special expertise in adapting old buildings to new purposes. The building exterior on the Union Street side remains largely unchanged, turning a familiar face to the Northfield community. On the inside, creative repurposing helps the space retain its historic character, showcasing the high ceilings, fine old woodwork and doors, and slate blackboards from the original middle-school classrooms.
