About the House

The aptly named New College House is the latest addition to the Franklin & Marshall College House System. Designed in the Georgian revival style of Charles Klauder, a renowned architect who designed seven historic buildings on campus, the New College House boasts students from all four years as its members. Construction on the building started in 2009, and it opened the fall of 2011. The New College House is the first LEED (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design) certified building on campus highlighting the college's commitment to sustainability.
