Scripps College is home to nine unique residence halls.
Eleanor Joy Toll Hall is the College’s first residence hall. It is named for Eleanor Joy Toll, the first woman trustee and prominent leader of women’s interests, such as music education, and civic progress, in Southern California.
Grace Scripps Clark Hall was one of the first residence halls built and remains one of the most popular today. The building features inner courtyards and balconies, and the mosaic-paved Olive Court, which connects to Toll Hall.
Browning Hall is named for the College’s founder, Ellen Browning Scripps and features an exterior staircase to the third floor and Browning bell tower.
Although she did not wish to have a building named after her, Ellen Browning Hall bares the first two names of Miss Scripps, and is dedicated to the memory of her brother, Edward W. Scripps.
This hall is named for Mrs. Dorsey, who was the first woman superintendent of schools in Los Angeles and one of the first Scripps trustees.
Frankel Hall is named for Los Angeles residents Cecil Frankel and Bessie Bartlett Frankel, an honorary alumna of the College since 1931.
Routt Hall is named for journalist and philanthropist Mary Patterson Routt, a founding trustee of the College.
Located across from Gabrielle Jungles-Winkler (GJW) Hall, the Senior Routt Apartments include four apartments and two three-student spaces.
Three-Student Space Amenities
Named for alumna Gabrielle Jungels-Winkler ’72, who provided key guidance to architects on this project in addition to supporting student scholarship programs, an endowed faculty chair in contemporary European studies, a lecture series at the European Union Center of California, and other academic programs.
Kimberly Hall honors Mary Kimberly Shirk, a trustee and interim president of Scripps College from 1942-1944. In 2000, the dining hall was renovated to house 25 additional students, becoming Wilbur Hall.

Students in an LLC choose to live together because of common interests or affiliations such as academic majors, languages, or social or political commitments. Scripps College leads the way for such communities within The Claremont Colleges, as the first of the 5Cs to have an LLC integrated into its residential life.
Located in Wilbur Hall, an LLC for students who are interested in science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) and pre-health fields.
Designed for students who want to explore commonalities and bridge differences across their diverse social identities, including but not limited to race, ethnicity, gender, religion, sexual orientation, and socioeconomic class. Students will be supported by various campus/consortium resources focused on social justice, diversity, and cultural competency and will develop deeper awareness, knowledge, and skills needed to create a residential community guided by the principles of inclusion and respect for difference. This LLC is located on the 2nd floor of GJW.
Students who speak Italian, Spanish, German, or French may choose to live in a language corridor. Each corridor has a residing, dedicated Language Assistant, and some corridors form language clubs, such as the German Club and French Club.
