Biographical / Historical
Merrill House was the first student residence to be inhabited at Hampshire College. Designed by architect Hugh Stubbins and built in 1970, it was named after Charles E. Merrill, a Hampshire trustee. The construction was funded by a grant from the Federal Department of Housing and Urban Development. Much of the initial planning for the Houses (the student residences at Hampshire) took place in Merrill.
