Grove House

The Grove House is a Craftsman-style house that serves as a restaurant, student center and residence. In 1976, it was purchased for $1 and then moved to campus in two pieces. It sat for several years before it was restored and finally opened in February 1980.

The Grove House features the Grove House kitchen, a Women’s Center, the Hinshaw Art Gallery, the Bert Meyers Poetry Room, and several other rooms suitable for meeting or just hanging out. Beautiful drought-tolerant gardens and a citrus grove surround the house. The original portion of the Rodman Arboretum, which now extends throughout campus, is behind the Grove House. An outdoor classroom which is also used for meetings and events stands on the south side.

The Grove House is open every day and most evenings. Events such as open mics, poetry and fiction readings, musical performances and art openings are organized and scheduled by the Grove House Committee. During the academic year, delicious lunch entrees are prepared fresh each weekday and refreshments and vegetarian/vegan items are available including famous Grove House cookies.
