Windsor

Welcome to Windsor Halls! Windsor is the oldest all-female residence hall at Purdue, consisting of five individual buildings: Duhme, Shealy, Warren, Wood and Vawter. Tunnels, that are accessible to students, connect all of the five halls.

Famous Residents

Amelia Earhart (Aviator), Lillian Gilbreth (Engineering/Industrial Management and the mother of 12 featured in the book, "Cheaper By The Dozen") and Janice Voss (Astronaut) 

Fun Facts

Windsor was designed so that nearly every room in each hall would receive sunlight at some point during the day. Another unique feature is four of the five halls line up in a straight line. In fact, if you were to open the lobby doors in Duhme, Shealy, Warren and Vawter, you would be able to shoot an arrow in a straight line through all of them!

An Architectural Treasure

If you love historic buildings and architecture, you will love living at Windsor! Its regal features will make you feel like you live in a castle. The five individual buildings were constructed over a period of about 20 years, between 1934 and 1951. Windsor is also home to some of the oldest and most mature trees on campus. Picture yourself studying under the share on a warm spring day or the rustle of colorful fall leaves waving in the autumn sun. 

Living at Windsor

Here you'll live in either a single, double or triple room (all located near a community bathroom). Each of the five buildings has a large living room on the main floors and unique lounges in the basement areas. If you are a fan of convenience, Windsor Dining Court is located within the complex (trust us, your life is not complete until you try the cinnamon rolls!) Also, just steps away you'll find Starbucks, Cosi, Third Street Market and the Purdue Amazon Store.

"Windsor Hall has provided me with an amazing jump start into college life. The girls of Windsor are fun and outgoing which made it easy to make friends out of complete strangers! The provided programs were always interesting and helpful in an academic way. The closeness of Windsor's location made it easy to get to class with little walking distance."
