Wells Hall

Wells Hall is one of two residence halls for men and houses 122 residents, in rooms that are approximately 11’ by 14’, each of which is equipped with super HD TV service with dedicated DVRs, as well as free Wifi with 1 Gbps (Gibabit per second) broadband Internet access. Two large restrooms are located on each floor and have just recently been thoroughly remodeled. Two Resident Assistants live on each floor, and a laundry room and kitchen are located on the first floor. A new lobby opened in 2007 that connects Wells Hall to Robertson Hall. The new facility has a large, spacious lounge area with pool and ping pong tables, a theater-style television room, a public restroom, vending machines, and an office and apartment for the Robertson-Wells Resident Director. Free laundry services are available for residential students in the building.

Named for W. Calvin Wells, a member of the Belhaven Board of Trustees from 1911 - 1952, Wells Hall opened in 1962.
