Donner House

Donner House is a traditional-style residence hall consisting of four floors with a large community lounge on the first floor. Donner is one of the larger communities on campus, consisting of around 240 first-year students. Our size and our love for all things blue have inspired us to adopt the blue whale as our official house mascot. What has a bigger heart than a blue whale? (Answer: nothing.) Despite our size, we boast a very tight knit and caring community with a lot of spirit.

Floor plans are representative. Room measurements are estimates. Actual sizes and individual furniture configurations will vary.
