Bernard Maybeck, the chief architect of the campus visioned the campus as an English village in the Tudor Style. But first, Maybeck had to play with some design and structural concepts before designing and constructing some of the beautiful building on campus. Enter the Mistake House, Maybecks testing ground. This little cottage is nestled on the Chapel Green and has been used for academic offices.

The Merrick Wing is home to the music, theater, and Mass Comm programs. Facilities include a small black box theater, a music performance hall, the campus TV & radio stations, the campus newspaper office (The Principia Pilot), classrooms and faculty offices.

One of the original gymnasiums on campus, the Morey Field House has been redesigned to support dance, theater and other indoor activities.

A quiet place on campus to get away from the hustle and bustle of college life and a place to meet with a Christian Science Nurse if any sort of help or support is needed.
