Welcome to the Frederick Douglass Learning Resource Center

The Frederick Douglass Learning Resource Center (Douglass Hall) is the pulse of student academic activity at Morehouse College. The Center is located in the heart of Freshman Housing offering students a quiet space on campus to study. A panoramic view of Morehouse history surrounds students as they study in the facility. Commuter students, study groups and student organizations use the Center as its base to study, to connect, to work on group projects, and to engage the Morehouse Community. The Academic Success and Retention Center is located in Douglass Hall and is committed to providing quality academic advising to empower students to achieve their goals. We have confidence that completing a Morehouse degree within four years is a realistic goal that our students can achieve and that Douglass Hall plays an important role in the mission of Morehouse College.
