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. The only underclassmen hall not located on Easy Street, Wheeler accommodates approximately 280 first-year students. Wheeler is a corridor-style hall supervised by nine Resident Assistants (RAs), one Head Resident Assistant (HRA), and one Community Development Coordinator.
Renovated during summer of 2010, Wheeler has various common areas for residents to enjoy throughout the year. They include a social room with a big screen TV, a recreation/video game room, 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,” where students often play stickball, as well as enjoy building wide events such as Chateau de Wheeler.
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. Triple rooms on each floor are typically larger. Every room has a window and fire-retardant drapes. The twin beds are extra long. "College size" sheets are recommended.
