Wilson Residence Hall

Wilson Hall was dedicated in 1970 in honor of Lewis W. Wilson. Mr. Wilson was associated with the New York State Education Department for 43 years and served as Commissioner of Education from 1950-1955.

A Great View of the Campus and Lots of Rooms

Wilson Hall is the largest residence hall on campus.

It is a nine story high-rise, co-ed building arranged in corridor style, with each floor having its own small study lounge.

Wilson is located on the banks of the Saranac River and all upper floors have sensational view of the college campus, Lake Champlain, or the Adirondacks.


The first floor houses the residence director's office, the mailroom, and pay telephones. There is also a lounge, with television, vending machines, and a kitchenette area. In the basement, there is a study lounge and a fully-equipped laundry room.

Fun Things to Do Near Wilson Hall

Wilson is also relatively close to the outdoor recreational facilities, which include six tennis courts, and is near one of the largest on-campus parking lots. Another attractive feature of Wilson Hall is its proximity to Sibley Hall, one of the academic facilities on campus.
