Part of the North Residential Village, Cutter House is a traditional-style residence hall in the first-year Juniper residential community. It houses approximately 110 students in mostly double rooms. The building is named after Annie Spencer Cutter (1877-1957) who is an alumna of Western Reserve University College for Women from 1899. Cutter was a teacher and librarian at the Cleveland Public Library who worked to establish collections and spaces specifically for young readers at the junior and senior high school level, and extended libraries into city schools by organizing the libraries and selecting the librarians. During World War I, she set up a library for soldiers in France. She was the president of the Mather Advisory Council from 1945-1948 and was awarded honorary doctorates from both Western Reserve University and Wooster College. 

Floor Plans

Cutter House is currently experiencing a light renovation which is changing the layout of the first floor. We will aim to add a floor plan, when available and photographs when the renovation ends.

Room & Furniture Details

The furniture in Cutter House is very similar to that in Sherman House, but not exactly the same. Once the renovation is finished and the furniture replaced, we will add specific pictures of that furniture.
