Named for Olin Templin (1861-1943), a mathematics graduate who from 1883 to 1943 was professor of philosophy, dean of the College, chair of the Alumni Association, and secretary of the KU Endowment Association. He also was instrumental in establishing scholarship and residence halls. This seven-story residence hall, opened in 1959, was extensively remodeled in 1997 into single, two- and four-person suites for 274 men and women. Each floor, or “house,” honors a person or tradition of excellence at KU; an honors program community is based here, and students must attain a minimum GPA.
