The only underclassmen hall not located on Easy Street, Wheeler accommodates approximately 270 first-year students.
Renovated in 2010, Wheeler is a corridor-style hall and has various common areas for residents to enjoy throughout the year. They include a social room with a big screen TV, a small lounge with two TVs, seminar room used for studying and classes, laundry facilities, and kitchen area with a microwave, stove and complete cooking facilities.
Each year the Wheeler House Council sponsors various activities that aid in maintaining the hall’s tight-knit community. The brick patio area and grass hill behind Wheeler is commonly known as “Wheeler Beach.”
In each room, you will find one desk, desk chair, desk lamp, overhead lighting, dresser, and bed per occupant. Double rooms are approximately 10' x 20' and have tiled floors. Every room has a window and fire-retardant drapes. The twin beds are extra long. "College size" sheets are recommended.
Wheeler Hall has a rich history of traditions and hall pride. Named after Rev. John D. Wheeler, S.J., Wheeler Hall opened on January 2, 1940. Wheeler is supervised by nine resident assistants (RAs), one head resident assistant (HRA), and one area coordinator (AC).
