Damaris O. Wilson Residence Hall
Wilson Hall houses 210 residents in a traditional hall setting. Each wing of this building has a community bathroom. Wilson Hall contains a TV Lounge with surround sound, study areas, public kitchen, a formal lounge, GSA lounge, and a recreation room. Wilson Hall was constructed in the same time frame as Wooddell Hall (1960-62), and it has been a women’s residence since being opened to students as the Women’s Upper-class Hall in 1962. The building was rededicated in 1977 in honor of Ms. Damaris O. Wilson, the Dean of Women at Concord College from 1952 until her retirement in 1972. In 2018, Wilson Hall was converted to a co-ed residence hall.
Rooms in Wilson hall each have two twin beds, two desks, two chairs, two built in dressers, two closets (with shelves, cubbies, and closet rod), large mirror with vanity lighting, built in shelves behind door, and four receptacles with eight outlets.

Each suite contains a bathroom, foyer (with a sink), and a storage closet shared by all members. South Tower houses men and North Tower houses women. The two structures share a large lounge area with pool tables and ping pong tables. This lounge also connects the buildings to the Fitness Center.
