-The Northeast Residential Area was built in the the years surrounding the Second World War as a major dormitory complex.  The ten structures that comprise the area were uniformly designed in neo-Georgian style between 1935 and 1959, and laid out in a bilaterally symmetrical site plan surrounding an open grassed area that is known as the Quad (quadrangle).  
- 
-Originally designed as dormitories, the group includes: 
-  
-  * [[buildings:k:knowlton|Knowlton House]] 
-  * [[buildings:h:hamlin|Hamlin House]] 
-  * [[buildings:c:crabtree|Crabtree House]] 
-  * [[buildings:l:leach|Leach House]] 
-  * Lyon House 
-  * Dwight House 
-  * Thatcher House 
-  * [[buildings:l:lewis|Lewis House]] and  
-  * [[buildings:j:johnson|Johnson House]] 
- 
-All continue to serve as dormitories in 2008, except for Arnold House, which was converted into offices in 1966.
