Harris Hall
1340 Clifton Road
Atlanta, GA 30322

Extensively renovated in 1995, Harris Hall is one of the most beautiful residence halls at Emory University. Located on Clifton Road, Harris Hall residents are close to the Goizueta Business School, Woodruff Library, and the Emory University Hospital. A historic sitting room and reception area with a grand piano are located in the building.

In summer 2013, Harris Hall underwent a few renovations including transforming several rooms into hall lounge space, new lighting, new furniture, and new carpet. We will continue to make improvements to the building during summer 2014.

Harris Hall is also the home of the new Flourish living-learning community, designed in partnership with Emory Cares 4 U. Flourish Emory will engage participants in a 9-week training program that uses a series of activities and reflections to teach students how to promote and protect healfh and well-being. The curriculum is designed to challenge students to live a more eudemonic (happiness conducive) life, while also including activities to increase their hedonic (pleasant) well-being. This program is made possible by a $10,000 matching grant (made possible by the S. Engelhard Center) awarded to Emory University by Bringing Theory to Practice, an independent project in partnership with the Association of American Colleges and Universities funded by the Charles Engelhard Foundation.
