Wayne State College


Located in the center of campus, Pile is known for a friendly accepting environment and academic atmosphere, and has the highest student participation rate in hall events. Pile makes a terrific home away from home at Wayne State. It's recently renovated, air-conditioned, and accessible for students with disabilities. What's more, Pile is right next to the beautiful Conn Library, close to the Kanter Student Center, and just across the way from the music and studio arts facilities. It has long been popular with upperclassmen.

"Pile Hall is really an underappreciated hall. Yes, it does have newly renovated rooms and air conditioning, but what really makes Pile stand out is the sense of community that forms so easily between the floors. It houses students of all different majors, which provides diversity and liveliness to the hall. When I leave Wayne State, I know that my time in Pile Hall will be greatly missed."
