Willow Hall is a beautiful complex located just yards from Mount Hope Bay and offers some of the most stellar views of the Bay and the Mount Hope Bridge on our campus. The 475 residents that live here are located over seven Townhouses and Unit-Style residence halls, which gives residents a wide variety of housing options and the opportunity to meet plenty of new people. It even has a sprawling grass courtyard and a stream in the middle, perfect for sitting outside, playing Frisbee, reading by the water, or taking a nap on a blanket. Each room comes with your standard furniture (bed, desk, chair, closet/armoire, bureau, cable/data hookup) and the entire complex is both air conditioned and completely wireless.
While we know how much you’ll love spending time outdoors, we also know that it gets a little cold here in the winter months. But have no fear! Willow also has its very own recreational room complete with couches, chairs, tables, a large-screen TV and a billiards table! So if you feel like grabbing a blanket and a movie to spend some time inside – we’ve got you covered! The laundry facilities and vending machines are located above the common room in the “44” building, as well as some additional sitting space and another large-screen TV.
The staff of Willow Hall is comprised of one Coordinator of Residence Education (CORE), one Head Resident Assistant (HRA), and 14 Resident Assistants (RA). The Coordinator of Residence Education serves to oversee the day-to-day operation of the complex, including supervision of the residence hall staff. There is one RA per unit in the traditional-style halls and either one or two RAs in each of the Townhouses (Units 1, 3, 6 & 7).
Hello! My name is Nick Frias and I am the CORE this year at Willow Hall. This is my second year at Roger Williams so I am eager to continue working with and getting to know the new and returning students who make up this community! I am from Reading, Massachusetts, which is about 20 minutes north of Boston and only a little over an hour away from Bristol. I completed my undergraduate degree at Quinnipiac University where I majored in broadcast journalism and then I earned my master’s in Higher Education at Merrimack College. You can also find me serving as the co-advisor to Roger After Dark, the late-night, alternative-to-drinking programming initiative every other Friday night or I can be found in the Fitness Center on campus. I am excited for another great year in WIllow and am looking forward to making it as much of a fun and successful year as possible!
