Travers and Wolfe Halls (T/W) were built in 1971 and each hold over 550 first year students. These two ten story, non-air conditioned residence halls are connected through a first floor link that offers several amenities to the buildings’ residents. Students in T/W can take advantage of the T-Dubs dinning hall or Aerobics Center. The T/W main lounge is one of the most popular communal spaces on campus, providing first year students with access to a wide range of programs and campus events. It is also a cool place to relax during the hot summer days in late August and early May.
Most Travers/Wolfe rooms are double occupancy with tile floors at approximately 175 square feet. Rooms typically include a sink with a mirror and medicine cabinet, overhead lighting, and bookshelves. Most double rooms include beds that can be bunked if students choose.
In addition to double rooms, Travers/Wolfe contains 18 four person rooms, colloquially known as ‘quads.’ These rooms are significantly larger than traditional double rooms (most are approximately 22×26) and may include a small refrigerator, sink, and microwave (residents can bring an additional microwave and fridge if desired.) All of our quad spaces have been recently renovated. If requested, during the academic year, Residential Education and Housing will make every effort to move students out of the quads and into traditional double rooms as vacancies permit. Approximately 6% of first year students will be placed into these quad spaces.
