Wassaja Hall is a quiet, modern residence hall that features double rooms clustered into small communities with private individual-use bathrooms. Wassaja is home to mostly upper-division undergraduate student residents who seek out the hall for its updated finishes and comfortable lounges. The Student Dining and Residential Programs Building (SDRP), which features dining, a residential library and social programming, is just a short walk away. Wassaja is across the street from the Marching Illini Practice Field and the tennis and basketball courts, making it easy to stay active with your friends.

Resident Director:

During the academic year when students are present, the front desk will be open from 6 a.m. – 3 a.m. When the front desk is not staffed, students can still call the front desk number. The call will be answered by a calling service able to help with general questions and emergencies and assist students who may have lost their i-card and be locked out of their building and room.

When break housing is being provided, the front desk will be open from 10 a.m. – 10 p.m. Calls will be forwarded to the RAs on duty when the desk is closed.
