Opened in 1999, the Kate M. Gregg House is part of the Robert S. Brookings Residential College. Gregg House primarily houses upperclassmen. For students with an entrepreneurial spirit, there are a number of student run businesses located on the ground level of the house.
Kate M. Gregg graduated from the University in 1959 with a bachelor's degree in economics. Both her father and grandfather were also alumni. A native of St.Louis, Gregg was an ardent supporter of the arts and gave generously of her time to local cultural institutions. She also volunteered enthusiastically on campus as a long-time member of the Washington University Association, the Women's Society and various Arts and Sciences alumni committees.
Gregg was particularly active in the Eliot Society and helped plan many of the society's events. She was a member of the Arts and Sciences Scholarship Committee and was much involved in organizing the gala to celebrate the 10th anniversary of Edison Theatre. Gregg died in 1998.
