Hightower Hall is located near Foster lake on the back side of campus and houses our upper-class women. The building was constructed in 1963 as a suite-style residence hall with extensive cosmetic changes made in the summer of 1999. Additional minor renovations were completed during the 2006-2007 academic year. The diverse community housed in Hightower is vibrant and respectful. Often times the sound of the lobby piano being played can be heard throughout the hall. In addition to our traditional students, Hightower Hall also is home to our Non-Traditional students who wish to have the residential experience while enrolled at Wesleyan. This community is located on the third floor.
The largest hall on campus, Hightower includes 61 rooms and can house 114 students comfortably. Every room is wired for high-speed internet access and cable service. Wireless is available throughout the building. There is a printer located on each floor for student use.
