Wilbur Hall is a large residence complex - home to approximately 390 students - consisting of eight houses which surround a central dining commons. One of the houses, Okada, is a four-class house with an Asian American cross-cultural theme. The complex has breezeways that connect adjacent houses from the second and third floors and extensive laundry equipment in its basement.
Wilbur Hall is named for Ray Lyman Wilbur, a Stanford alumnus, who served as dean of the Stanford School of Medicine, third Stanford president (1916-1943), and chancellor. As with Stern Hall, Wilbur was built following World War II and moved away from the arches and intricacies that characterized the rest of Stanford campus. Each house in Wilbur is named for a Spanish word. Though originally designed as an all-men’s residence, the complex has been mixed-gender for several decades.
Which houses are used for frosh and which are used for upperclass students is subject to change.
