Welcome to Wilgus Hall
Wilgus Hall, named after James A. Wilgus and built in 1963, accommodates approximately 60 men and 170 women. Wilgus is located on the corner of Greewood Avenue and College Drive. Wilgus Hall was an all-women’s residence hall but it became co-ed for the 2017-2018 school year. 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 one of the first all-hall programs of the year. Wilgus Hall is also home to the Women's Wellness library and Interest Community.

Welcome to February!
This month is super busy around campus, and the hall, with many important events.
Room Reservations: The room reservation process for 2018-2019 begins on February 12th. The full breakdown can be read on our information page (Read More Here) but residents will get a chance to sign up for their exact same room from the 12th until the 14th. After that opens the ability to change to different locations within the hall or elsewhere on campus. Don't be afraid to ask hall staff if you have any questions about this process!
Snow Emergencies: February and March can be difficult months for snow fall in Wisconsin. As such, it is important to know about our campus Snow Emergency Removal process. You can read all about it by clicking this link. When this is declared for either streets or parking lots, posters will be placed around Wilgus Hall instructing you which days are which.
Events: There are plenty of events on campus! Friday Night Clubs start up this week with Porter Hall’s Fiesta. Also, make sure to get ready for Wilgus’ annual Women’s Weekend, the first weekend of March. As always, this is an event open up to everyone! We can’t wait to see you there.
That's all for now. Start brainstorming how you'll get involved and make an impact for this semester and/or next academic year. Stay warm and have a wonderful February, Pioneers.
