ABOUT THE COMMUNITY            Woodward

Woodward Hall is home to two first year Living Learning Communities: Entrepreneurship and Creatvity (beginning Fall 2018).  

HALL FEATURES

Woodward Hall houses approximately 80 students in double rooms on co-ed floors. There are vending machines and a laundry room next to the first floor lounge. Woodward residents have access to Anderson Hall (next door) and its full kitchen.

ROOM FEATURES

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 will have an additional extra long twin bed, and may have an additional desk and desk chair.

HALL HISTORY

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.

WHAT MAKES WOODWARD HALL A GREAT PLACE TO LIVE

Woodward's small size helps students get to know others in their community more easily. The hall is close to the shuttle bus stop at Bailey.
