West Hall (completed in 1958) is the second-oldest residence hall on campus, so named because it is west of what now is called East. It is also an inner hall with pairs of rooms connected by a bathroom. West is the closest hall to the dining hall. 

West is the home to a diverse set of individuals, a wide range of people from gamers to athletes to laid back people, are happy to call West their home. Residents enjoy hanging out with each other in the courtyard, engaging in harmless demolition. Westies put science to creative use in a lot of the clever fun they have. West is also known for its bonfires, playing loud music from its speaker suite Subatomic, and enjoying the weekend events the dorm often hosts. Their motto is “WIBSTR.”
