Kathryn Denver Memorial Hall

Dedicated: 1925


One of the most distinctive of Wilmington College’s buildings-and among its three oldest—Denver Hall has graced the northeastern corner of campus since its dedication in 1925.

The residence hall is named in memory of Kathryn Denver, a local girl who was killed by a train in 1918. The unique structure, with its red brick, colonial design and terraced porch, has been a favorite of Wilmington students for parts of eight decades.

Denver currently is home to 50 men and women. Denver has laundry and TV lounge facilities, a kitchen, a game room and vending machines. Each student room is furnished with desks or study tables, chairs, beds, dressers, and wardrobe closets. Each student room also has telephone and basic cable TV hookups. Each floor has a single-sex bathroom.  Denver can house about 50 men and women on separate floors.
