Crystal Belle

Welcome to Wait Hall! At Wait Hall we understand it is all about location, location, location. Conveniently located a short walk from your classes and a dry, covered walk to the Dining Hall, Wait also manages to be tucked away from the hustle and bustle of the other halls. Need more peace and quiet? The hiking trails of Northwoods are just across the street. Want more excitement? Your friends’ apartments are just down the hill. With all of that, in addition to lounges on every floor, cozy suites (generally just two singles and a double/triple), and great outdoor space (basketball hoop, picnic tables and green space), it is easy to see that the best things come to those who Wait.
