The largest Program House on south campus is Lord-Saunders, also known as Afrikan Heritage House. Approximately 80 students live in Lord-Saunders creating a family atmosphere that extends beyond the house and into the larger campus community. The house features singles, doubles, and quads; a lounge with a piano and television; computer and science labs; and kitchen facilities. It is connected to Lord-Saunders Dining Hall.

This modern building overlooking South Bowl is a designated safe space for residents and students of the African Diaspora. The house is the center of activity for students of all levels who want to heighten their understanding of cultures, traditions, and issues among African, African American, and Afrikan Caribbean societies.
