Lawrence has two guest houses for visiting faculty/staff and visitors and a community space for meetings and other functions for campus groups. 

The guest houses located on North Park Street were built in the 1890s by original Appleton residents and were purchased by Lawrence University in the 1970s. These spaces have been used to accommodate faculty and staff from around the US.
