Wilder Hall

Wilder Hall was built in 1899, with a gift given by Charles Wilder of Wellesley Hills in memory of his wife Mary Ware Wilder, a member of the class of 1852. It was designed by G. Powell Karr of New York, in the style of the Elizabethan renaissance.

Wilder Hall houses 101 students in single, double, and triple rooms on four floors. Wilder is known for its location on campus and its beautiful architecture.  It is located on Skinner Green adjacent to the Community Center. It is near most classrooms, as well as Pratt Music Building and Lower Lake. Renovated in the summer of 2004, Wilder was the first residence hall to become fully accessible. With its central location, carpeted hallways, hardwood floors, and beautiful common rooms, Wilder is popular among students.  The basement of Wilder Hall is also home to the Office of AccessAbility Services.
