Get Directions

Located on the northern outskirts of campus, but still only a short walk away, Keep is a large mansion with an expansive porch and swing. Providing meals for 75 students, the cottage houses 54 of those diners. Similar to Tank and Old Barrows, Keep has a tradition of meat-friendly meals while always having vegetarian and vegan options. The intimate and homey lounge is the primary venue for merriment, tomfoolery, and communal music playing.

Keep’s basement is also home to the Oberlin Bike Co-op, where students can rent bicycles and learn to fix them, too.
