Vollum College Center

Vollum is home to Reed’s largest academic lecture hall, which is also a venue for public talks and readings. Classrooms and faculty and staff offices fill the remaining space. If you need a break, find the bench behind the building and enjoy the sound of the fountain and lovely view of the canyon.
