Wilgus Hall

Welcome to Wilgus Hall

Wilgus Hall, named after James A. Wilgus and built in 1963, accommodates approximately 230 women. Wilgus is located on the corner of Greewood Avenue and College Drive. Wilgus Hall is specifically unique because it is an all-women’s residence hall. This living option offers a terrific opportunity for women to build a close community within the hall.  Each floor features a kitchenette and lounge area for the convenience of its residents. Wilgus hall has a newly renovated basement with study rooms, a computer room, laundry facility, ice machine, and offers The Lynn Collins Conference Room that features a TV and a kitchen in a large meeting and dining area.  The conference area is well utilized throughout the year by many organizations on campus.

Wilgus Hall sponsors an annual Women’s Weekend and partners with McGregor Hall to do the annual Luau, one of the first all-hall programs of the year. Wilgus Hall is also home to the Women's Wellness library and Interest Community.


From the Desk of the Resident Director

Hi Wilgus!

The fall semester is almost here! I've included some helpful information you will need for the start of the school year.

Opening:  Wilgus Hall will reopen on September 3rd for new students (freshmen and transfer students), and September 4th for returning students. You will need to bring your filled out Personal Data Form to the front desk of Wilgus on the day of move-in. If you would like to buy an activity pass they will be on sale during move-in! You can purchase an activity pass for either $8 a semester or $15 for the year. The pass will give you the ability to rent items from the front desk like cooking supplies, board games, and pool table equipment. If you don't know for sure what to bring to campus don't worry. Just check out the department's packing list found here.

Lofts: Residents living within Wilgus Hall are able to rent a wooden loft kit directly from the building. All lofts include an optional ladder and rail. For an additional cost you may purchase a shelf on which to set alarm clocks, books, glasses, or other items. To order a wooden loft please complete the wooden loft application form found here. For more information please visit the lofts section of our website. We recommend ordering the loft as soon as you get your housing assignment.

Women’s Wellness Interest Community: All residents living in Wilgus can actively participate in our interest community. The Women’s Wellness IC takes a holistic approach to the development of women on campus as they grow as individuals and leaders. Women in this community will explore areas that impact their overall wellness. Such areas include: Physical and Mental Health, Financial Literacy, and Intellectual Growth. Participants will be able to develop in a fun and safe environment, supported by other strong women. This IC is open to all women who are interested in personal and professional growth.

Can't wait for the school year to start! If you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to contact me at stonerm@uwplatt.edu.
