Wayland House

Wayland House

I have definitely gotten spoiled in Wayland because the rooms are big and get so much sunlight. Wayland is wonderful!

Wayland House is the only building on Wriston Quadrangle that does not contain a fraternity, sorority, or program house. The first floor of Wayland is occupied by the Office of Residential Life and the Office of Auxiliary Housing. The doubles on the upper floors are home to a freshman unit, while the singles and fourth floor suites are occupied by upperclassmen.
