Welcome to the Peter J. Werth Residence Tower

Werth Tower is a traditional-style residence hall that is focused on supporting students’ personal, interpersonal, and intellectual growth through participation in Living-Learning Communities. Werth Tower is comprised mostly of first and second year students, but is also home to upperclass students, many of whom hold leadership positions within the Learning Communities. Collaboration between Residential Life, First Year Programs & Learning Communities, the Honors Program, and various faculty and staff from across campus foster innovation and community within Werth Tower.

Werth Tower is located in the Hilltop area of campus, adjacent to the campus athletic facilities and a short walk from the center of campus. In addition to the residential spaces in the building, Werth Tower is home to offices for Residential Life and First Year Programs & Learning Communities staff, as well as a variety of spaces that foster academic success, innovation, and community building. These spaces include the Learning Community Innovation Zone makerspace, the Idea Lab, the Werth Tower Forum for programs and events, and dedicated community spaces for the students and faculty in each Learning Community.

Werth Tower is primarily a first year and second year area of campus. These areas are designed to help students adjust to college life and transition to community style living. Students will be assigned to these areas with other first year students as roommates, or with second year students as roommates who are familiar with these areas and can serve as resources and mentors.
