Living in Willard
Each room has at least one big, beautiful window. Students have added curtains or just let the light in!
Typical window size: 60'' wide and 64'' tall
Willard has community restrooms on each floor, and some rooms have their own bathroom in compliance with AccessibleNU. The bathrooms have been recently renovated and are very clean - do not let the word "community" scare you!
Each room in Willard has hard wood floors. They're perfect for moving furniture, they're easy to keep clean, and many students choose to bring a rug to match their decor!
Each resident will receive in their room a desk, desk chair, twin XL bed, closet or dresser, wastebasket, and recycling basket.
Typical desk dimensions: 42.5'' wide and 24'' deep
Typical dresser dimensions: 30'' wide and 20'' deep
All dorms at Northwestern have electronic keys. Rather than add a physical key to your key-chain, we just swipe our Wildcards, our Northwestern ID, for access to our rooms and the building amenities, such as the gym!
What You Need
Weather permitting, Willard residents have the opportunity to get lit. There is a big fire pit right outside of the building where the dorm hosts events, or students may just sit around the fire with their friends.
GIANT CHESS BOARD
How about a game of chess? There is a full, over-sized chess board outside the building next to the fire pit. Students play even in the dead of winter!
Willard Residential College is the closest dormitory to downtown Evanston. Walk outside the building, and you're at Lou Malnati's. Cross the street to get to Starbucks, Colectivo, Kung Fu Tea, CVS, Target, and a weekly farmer's market in the fall and the spring! They have everything from large department stores to a little psychic boutique, and so much delicious food.
