Grainger Hall

Grainger Hall, one of PUC’s three men’s residence halls, has gone by a number of names over the years. The building was originally the Angwin Hotel, and after PUC bought the property and opened in Angwin in 1909, the structure was renamed Adelphian Hall and later North Hall. Rebuilt in 1923 and named Grainger Hall in 1930, this men’s residence hall is a vast improvement over the accommodations that early male students experienced. Since the Angwin Hotel was the nicest building around, it was used as a ladies residence hall until 1912. Before the men of PUC took over Grainger, they slept in tents, barn lofts, and the dark, damp cellar of the former dance hall.

Grainger Hall still boasts some of the architectural features from those early days, but the building has been updated to accommodate men of the twenty-first century. Several of Grainger’s 92 rooms are remodeled every summer, making way for the 150 students that the hall houses during the school year. The dorm has community showers and bathrooms, and is equipped with a laundry room and full kitchen, as well as vending machines. It also has a comfortable parlor with television. To make studying easier, the rooms are each linked so that students can have access to the library, their professors, and the Internet. Grainger is conveniently located on the campus, with quick access to the Dining Commons.
