Description

Originally named College Inn, this privately owned and managed dormitory opened in 1966. The seven-story building, 125,020 sf,  cost approximately three million dollars.  In 1974, the building was up for sale.  Lane County considered acquiring it for use as a jail. The State Board of Higher Education bought the building for the University of Oregon for $1.65 million and it was renamed University Inn. In 2001, the building was named after H. Philip Barnhart, University Housing Director emeritus, who was housing director from 1951 to 1979.
