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.
