Burton–Judson Courts is built around two courtyards that are named after the university's second and third presidents, Harry Pratt Judson and Ernest DeWitt Burton.[2] Burton-Judson contains six houses: Chamberlin, Coulter, Dodd-Mead, Linn-Mathews, Salisbury, and Vincent.[3] In addition to student rooms, the building contains a library, lounge rooms, and apartments for resident heads and the resident deans.[3] [4]
