Wren Hall, 1964
|Wren Hall, a dormitory on the Medford campus, was constructed in 1964 to serve as a residence for male undergraduate students. It was built concurrently with Haskell Hall, a residence for women, located on the downhill part of the campus, which shares the same design. It was named for Frank G. Wren, dean of the Faculty of Arts and Sciences for twendy-five years.|
Wren and Haskell Halls were designed with a floorplan in which rooms are grouped into suites with a common area. The building's architects were Perry & Dean.
As of 2000, Wren Hall continues to be used as a coeducational residence for undergraduates.
