110 Nourse Lane, Northfield, Minnesota 55057

Nourse Hall was built in 1917 making it one of the oldest buildings on campus. Made up of single, double, and triple occupancy rooms, Nourse offers a dedicated all women floor, all men floor, and a Quiet Living Area.

One of Nourse’s more notable features is the Nourse Little Theater which is managed by the Student Activities Office and hosts a variety of student led productions for the Carleton community.

On its East entrance, Nourse shares the Mini Bald Spot with three other residential halls and the East Dining Hall (LDC). On its West entrance, Nourse is steps away from Carleton’s Integrated Science Complex, Anderson Hall. Combined, this makes Nourse a highly sought after housing location.
