Austin-Pickett Halls

Welcome to Wilmington College and your home away from home where you can claim one of our rooms in the residential buildings of Austin and Pickett, or, as we like to call it around here, “AP.”  Located on Elm Street, directly across from Herman Court/Raizk Arena, these co-ed buildings (alternating floors of male/female) are conjoined and have 4 floors of single, double, triple, and quad rooms.
