Ochre Lodge

Ochre Lodge serves as the Multicultural House living learning community, which promotes the understanding of difference, celebrates diversity and purposefully shares unique experiences with the rest of the campus community.

Designed by renowned local architect Dudley Newton and completed in 1883, this seaside villa is an excellent example of the Shingle-style villas built in Newport during the late 19th century.

Commissioned by Julia Eldridge of New York, the structure features balconies, alcoves and verandas in a variety of woods and finishes. Located on Ruggles Avenue, Ochre Lodge was given to Salve Regina in 1966 by Anita O'Keeffe Young, sister of American painter Georgia O'Keeffe.
