WHAT IS WILLARD RESIDENTIAL COLLEGE?

Founded in 1972, Willard Residential College (known as the Woo-Shack) is one of the oldest and largest members of Northwestern University's Residential College Board. Built in 1938, Willard Hall was originally a female dormitory until it became the first undergraduate co-ed housing on campus in 1970. Willard Hall was named after Frances Willard, president of the Evanston College for Ladies and a founder in the late nineteenth century of the Woman’s Christian Temperance Union.

Located in the basement of Willard, the Great Room acts as a gathering place for everyone in the SouthWest Neighborhood. You can find students practicing at the Grand Piano or playing Smash Tournaments on the TV.

Fran's Cafe, situated in the basement of Willard, is home to the best milkshakes on campus, and arguably, in the world. You can use your dining dollars here, so it's essentially free!
