John J. Edens Hall of Residence (EH), known as Edens Hall or simply Edens (pronounced /ˈiːdənz/), is a dormitory located on North Campus at Western Washington University. The hall's façade is inscribed with the quote, "Here is the home of color and light," taken from the poem "The Normal" by Ella Rhoads Higginson, after whom Higginson Hall is named.

Edens was built in 1921 by Bellingham architect Thorton F. Doan (1866–1930). It was renovated in 1994 by Duarte Bryant Architecture.
