Ferrin Hall

Located in the center of campus next to the intramural field, Ferrin Hall is home to approximately 160 residents. Ferrin Hall opened in 1985, the year Barrington College of Rhode Island merged with Gordon and is named for Howard W. Ferrin, a longtime president of Barrington College. Each floor is community-style: residents share a common area lounge, a study room, and floor bathroom. The patio behind the building is a popular location for campus coffeehouses, cookouts, and other outdoor festivities. Ferrin offers a relaxed atmosphere and a welcoming home away from home. The hall contains double and triple rooms, as well as five apartments on the lowest level.
