Weiss Hall | Wilkes University

Evans Hall

Weiss Hall is somewhat famous for the Homecoming displays traditionally hung from its second-floor balcony. Weiss Hall is a single-sex living environment (female only). The capacity of this building is 22 beds with a support staff of one RA. Singles, doubles, and triples are offered as housing options.

Inside, Weiss Hall offers mansion-style (yet cozy) living. It is a popular dorm because many of its rooms feature original fireplaces, sliding pocket doors and built-in bookshelves.

The beauty of the building is apparent as soon as you enter the front door. Richly carved woodwork wraps the lobby and an elaborate stained-glass window lights the landing of the home's main staircase to welcome you.

Don't let the beauty and craftsmanship of the building intimidate you though. An inscription on Weiss' lobby fireplace accurately sums up the feeling of this home - "East, West; Home is Best."
