Waller Hall is a men-only residence and is centrally located on campus. Single-gender halls can provide a more comfortable living environment for students who feel pressured to socialize around members of the opposite sex and helps promote camaraderie among your hall mates. The rooms are designed for privacy, and most students have personal sinks. Due to the structure of the rooms, essentially, each student has their own separate space whether the room is designated as a single or a double. Waller Hall is known for its rich history steeped in tradition. During the fall semester, Waller hosts an annual Blacklight Dance, serenades our sister halls, and competes in Homecoming. During the spring Waller hosts Duchess Week, a series of social activities and mixers to elect and crown the Duchess of Windsor. Waller Hall also participates in Cougar Pride Days, and promotes the scholarship of its students by participating in the Freshmen Focus Program. For recreational use, Waller Hall has a number of tables in its' "Gentlemen's Club" including a pool table, a foosball table, a ping-pong table, an air hockey table, a poker table that doubles as a bumper pool table, a full weight room, kitchen, two big screen TV's, a Cinema Room complete with big screen and surround sound, a front desk that checks out board games, and other recreation equipment, a full length basketball court, and three operational fire places. There are 3 washing machines and 4 dryers in the basement and the fee for their use is included in the housing and dining contract. The closest residential dining facility is Southside Café.
