Wright Hall serves as one of the exclusively first-year residence halls at Clark University. The building houses approximately 202 students and several Resident Advisers.  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!  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, and the Little Center.  Wright Hall is also within a quick walk of the campus center, including the Higgins University Center, Atwood Hall, and Jonas Clark Hall.
