Building History

Seattle architects John Graham, Sr., (1873-1955) and David J. Myers (1872-1939) associated to work on this dormitory commission; their formal partnership lasted only between 1905-1910. The dormitory was renamed "Hansee Hall" in 1965.


The four-story building had an H shape, the rooms located in four "houses", each named after a significant woman; the building shares the "Jacobethan" styling of the campus's Main Quad.
