Wright Hall houses 202 students. Like in Bullock Hall and Dana Hall, Wright Hall is exclusively First Year Students. The unique opportunities and sense of community experienced in an exclusively first year hall are just the start of Wright Hall’s many great attributes. Wright Hall’s large size means that you’ll find yourself part of an immense community, full of life and fun! There is almost always something going on in Wright Hall, whether it be an impromptu movie night amongst friends, or an organized event hosted by one of the seven Wright Hall Resident Advisors. Wright Hall anchors the north side of campus, and is only a minute walk from the the Kneller Athletic Center, the Goddard Library, the Administration Building, Estabrook Hall, the Little Center, Dodd, and Johnson-Sanford Center. Wright Hall is also within a quick walk of the campus center, including the Higgins University Center, Atwood Hall, Jonas Clark Hall, Jefferson Hall, and Bullock Hall.
Wright Hall was extensively remodeled in the Summer of 2010. The redesign provided Wright with all new bathrooms, common rooms, kitchen, and laundry facilities. For more details see the slideshow below or visit the Wright and Bullock Renovation page. Wright Hall features abundant social and study space throughout its main three floors and basement level. There is a social lounge on every floor, and smaller sitting nooks scattered around. On the first floor you will find a 9 foot billiards table, vending machines, and a multimedia study room with computer terminal and a 52″ flat screen monitor. On the second floor you will find a quiet study room and a laundry center with computer terminal. On the third floor is another quiet study room and a kitchen for residential use. Wright Hall features two common bathrooms with privacy partitions for showering on each floor (plus one in the basement).
Wright Hall is comprised of 94 double rooms, 11 single rooms, and 1 triple room. There are also 7 Resident Advisers and 1 Hall Director living in Wright Hall. Rooms are equipped with beds and mattresses (extra long twin), desks, chairs, bookshelves, built in closets, and window shades. Also provided is telephone, cable, and high speed internet service.
Wright Hall double rooms are approximately 12′ wide by 15′ 6″ long, with one large window (6′ wide by 5″ high) opening directly across from the room door. The built in closets mounted on either side of the room door reduce overall moveable space to approximately 12′ by 13′ 3″.
The Wright Hall triple room is 16′ wide by 15′ 6″ long. The three built in closets mounted on both sides of the room door reduce overall moveable space to approximately 16′ by 13′ 3″.
Each wing has a communal bathroom consisting of multiple stalled toilets and stalled showers. Each bathroom also has a handicapped stall. There is also one gender neutral single stalled bathroom with no shower.
