Collier House is a historic building located in Eugene, Oregon, United States. It was built in 1886[1] by George Collier, a physics and chemistry professor at the University of Oregon, and his two sons[2] to his own design.[1] It was originally built as his residence but was sold to the University in 1893, when it joined Deady and Villard halls as the third building on the fledgling campus

Over the years the Italianate building has served as a dormitory, the university president's residence, the school's library, the faculty club, offices, a meeting space,[1] and a restaurant and pub. As of autumn 2015, the building is used as classroom, office, and performance space by the musicology and ethnomusicology department in the School of Music and Dance.[3]
