ABOUT THE COMMUNITY

Woodward Hall houses approximately 80 students in double rooms. Woodward is the only hall that has a computer lab, which is available to all Woodward residents 24/7. There is a laundry room and vending machines right off the main lounge. Woodward residents have access to Anderson Hall (next door) and its full kitchen.
Every standard occupancy room has a built-in closet or wardrobe, desk and chair, dresser, extra long twin bed, and a room micro-fridge. Every room also has high speed internet and cable tv hookups. Rooms are roughly 14' x 16'. Enhanced occupancy rooms may will have an additional extra long twin bed, and may have an additional desk and desk chair.
The building of Woodward Hall in 1955 kicked off a flurry of construction on the Gorham campus, which lasted through 1970. Woodward Hall was the first dormitory for men. It was named for Louis B. Woodward, who taught natural and social sciences at Gorham from 1913 to 1955, and also served as Vice Principal from 1935 to his retirement.
