Built as a dormitory for women students and now a co-educational residence, Lausanne Hall was named for the ship that in the 1840s brought the "second reinforcement" of Methodist missionaries to theWillamette Mission, which preceded the founding of the university. It faces Winter Street on the west edge of the original campus. The rear facade features covered open porches on two levels that originally overlooked Sweetland Field, but in the 1950s this view was eclipsed by the construction of another dormitory.
The building is in excellent condition following renovation and modernization in the 1980s.
