Persons Hall is a suite style facility which houses upper-class students. This building was constructed in 1928 as a community bath - style residence hall and was renovated in 1998 converting the hall to suite-style accommodations. During renovations custom computer/study nooks were installed, and the building was completely re-wired, re-plumbed, and networked for computer, telephone, and cable. Accommodations include lounges located on every floor, a community kitchen and a large porch complete with rocking chairs for gathering.
Persons includes 51 rooms and can house 95 students comfortably. In the rooms, ceiling fans supplement the room-controlled air conditioning units. 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.

Persons Hall is named in memory of Mary Barry Persons, Class of 1869, in appreciation of a substantial gift to Wesleyan’s endowment by her two sons, Robert T. and G. Ogden Persons of Forsyth, Georgia. In 2004 plaques designating previous donors were restored and displayed on each room door bringing back a long history of Wesleyannes.
