  • Willow Hall

Willow Hall is a beautiful complex located just yards from Mount Hope Bay and offers some of the most stellar views of the Bay and the Mount Hope Bridge on our campus. The 475 residents that live here are located over 7 Townhouses and Unit-Style residence halls giving residents a wide variety of housing options and the opportunity to meet tons of new people. It even has a sprawling grass courtyard and a stream in the middle, perfect for sitting outside, playing Frisbee, reading by the water, or taking a nap on a blanket. Each room comes with your standard furniture (bed, desk, chair, closet/armoire, bureau, cable/data hookup) and the entire complex is both air conditioned and completely wireless.

While we know how much you’ll love spending time outdoors, we also know that it gets a little cold here in the winter months. But have no fear! Willow also has it’s very own recreational room complete with couches, chairs, tables, a large-screen TV, and a billiards table! So if you feel like grabbing a blanket and a movie to spend some time inside – we’ve got you covered! The laundry facilities and vending machines are located above the common room in the “40s” building, as well as some additional sitting space and a large-screen TV.

The staff of Stonewall Terrace is comprised of one Coordinator of Residence Education (CORE), one Head Resident Assistant (HRA), and 14 Resident Assistants (RA). The Coordinator of Residence Education serves to oversee the day-to-day operation of the complex, including supervision of the residence hall staff. There is one RA per unit in the traditional-style halls, and either one or two RAs in each Townhouse.

A Message from CORE Tessa:

Hello! I'm Tessa McLain, and I'm excited to join the Roger Williams team as a new CORE.  I'm originally from Alabama, and I completed a dual B.A. in French and Research Psychology with a concentration in clinical neuroscience and psychopathology from Vanderbilt University in Nashville, TN.  I spent my graduate work at the University of South Carolina, where I finished my M.Ed. in Higher Education Administration and Student Affairs.  When I have free time, I enjoy reading, baking, and doing anything active, especially outside.  I'm a contracted dance instructor and choreographer when I have the time.  I love country music and am currently learning the banjo!  You can reach me via email (, phone (401-254-3161) or feel free to stop by my office (Willow Unit 44)!
