Built in 1885, Johnson house is the second oldest residence hall on campus and the only one designated solely for Jewish students. A three-story mansion housing approximately 30 students, the Program House is on the southern outskirts of the college’s boundaries.

The house contains a fully equipped kitchen, study lounges, and the Joseph Elias Memorial Library that offers program-related materials.

Johnson House is open to all students, from first-year to fourth-year. A resident assistant and one faculty in residence live here. Although the house does not have a language requirement many students meet to speak Hebrew. Many also apply to dine in nearby Kosher Halal Co-op, located in Talcott Hall.
