Erdman Hall


Historic Erdman Hall was built in 1927 in memory of Grace Carter Erdman, the wife of beloved Professor Pardee Erdman. Designed by famed Rose Bowl architect Myron Hunt, the residence hall reflects the Spanish revival style seen throughout the Occidental College campus. Period details include hardwood floors, French doors, and wrought iron balconies. It is just a short walk from dining, classroom and meeting facilities. This hall has also played host to numerous Hollywood films, television shows, and commercials.


Each guest room is furnished with one dresser, desk, and chair per bed. Beds are California Long Twin size (suitable for one person) unless otherwise noted. Guest rooms also feature sinks.


Guest rooms have hardwood floors. Lobby, lounge areas and hallways are carpeted.


The lounge area consists of two adjoining rooms and is furnished with many easy chairs and sofas. Laundry facilities are located in the lower level.


Rooms 101, 102, 103, 104, and 110 are all ADA Accessible through the front door. The restroom in that wing of the building is also accessible with a roll-in shower and restroom stalls.


Erdman Hall is equipped with air conditioning in all rooms; room settings are controlled individually.


Smoking is prohibited in all facilities, including residence halls, at Occidental College.7
