Paterson House, a Living Learning Community, is named for board member Albert Barnett Paterson. Paterson's unique floor plan features rooms that open off a central hallway, while others are entered from an external balcony. Rooms located on a central hallway are double occupancy with community bathrooms. The rooms on the external balconies are four-person suites with a shared bathroom. Paterson is equipped with moveable, Shaker-style wood furniture, extra long twin beds, and is coed by interior floor or by suite in the exterior stations of the building.
