This residence is a part of Hyperion


Wilbur Hall West consists of four houses - Otero, Rinconada, Soto and Trancos - which surround and a central dining commons. Otero House is home to the Public Service and Civic Engagement theme house. Service Scholars in Otero make a year-long commitment to a public service program or organization. Learn more about this theme here.

Trancos is the Outdoor House theme, aiming to be a bastion for thought and discussion about coupled human natural systems, sustainability, and conservation. Learn more about this theme here.

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.
