What's the name of the Chancellor's house?

That big residence at 1532 Lilac Lane, just next to the scholarship halls, is called "The Outlook." Originally built by the Watkins family in 1912, the mansion has 26 rooms and over 6,000 square feet. It now serves as both a home to the University's chancellor and a site for KU social events.
