Metcalf Hall


Metcalf Hall is on the northern side of upper campus, off Howard Street and adjacent to Park Hall. Primarily a 2nd, 3rd, and 4th year student residence hall, it has three floors, including some suite-style rooms. Approximately 65 students there live in single, double, triple, and quad rooms.

There is a lounge on the first floor with a television, and a kitchen with a refrigerator/freezer, stove, oven, sink, and microwave. The lower level contains laundry facilities with two washers and two dryers and a large game room with a pool table, table tennis, and lounge space. Rooms are carpeted with window blinds and are furnished with a bed, desk, dresser, and storage space for each student.

Metcalf Hall was built in 1933 and was named for Caroline Cutler Metcalf, who from 1850–1876 served as the principal of Wheaton Female Seminary, the precursor to Wheaton College.
