Playground and Recreation Areas

A playground area is available near the garden. A second, fenced playground for younger children is located behind building 12. These playgrounds are shared with Karin Court, the housing complex located behind the old Lawrence buildings. (Karin Court is not affiliated with the University.) The university does not supervise the playgrounds.

Please note that dogs are not permitted in playgrounds.

Several picnic groves with barbecue grills and benches are located on the grounds. These are available on a first-come, first-serve basis, and residents are responsible for providing their own charcoal and grilling supplies. Some residents in buildings 2-7 have their own grills, which they store in the grilling area behind each building. Gas grills may not be used within 10 feet of the buildings.

Common rooms may be reserved for events by contacting the GC office coordinator,  Lynne McClister (
