Annual events include the Ashton Cup (a lip-sync contest and more) and Fall Quarter Retreat (a weekend excursion to SPU's Camp Casey on Whidbey Island). The Ashton Hall Council is known for creative and thought-provoking programming. Ashton is an ideal place for both studying and relaxing, and it boasts a renovated lounge and convenient exercise room.
Opened in 1965 and originally named Upper Residence Hall, Ashton was renamed in honor of Dr. Philip F. Ashton for his service as psychology professor at Seattle Pacific University from 1929 to 1971.
