Welcome to Lincoln Hall


Welcome to the Lincoln Hall web page! Here you can discover more information about the residence hall and the number of opportunities that await its residents. Feel free to navigate the website using the NavBar above and to the left, so that you may find out more information regarding our staff, programs, activities, and facilities.


Completed in 2006, Lincoln Hall was built to create an academic focused environment where students can have interactions with multiple faculty members inside the hall. The Residence Hall Coordinator, Justin Ellis, eleven Resident Assistants, one Wellness Coordinator, and the Resident Faculty Leaders work together in order to bring the vision of the hall to life.

Lincoln Hall’s motto is Domus A Domo, which means, “Home Away from Home”. The vision of the Resident Faculty Leaders is to create synergy between academics and student social life.


Lincoln Hall models its programmatic vision after the Oxford Residential College concept. This concept focuses on bringing faculty into the residence hall to promote one-on-one interaction between professors and students. There are five faculty fellows who teach a University 194 seminar within Lincoln Hall. This seminar, which substitutes for University 101, is encouraged as an alternative for Lincoln Hall freshman residents and helps to build the one-on-one relationships with faculty members. With all Lincoln Hall has to offer, it is truly a dynamic, academically-oriented place to live at WVU!

Lincoln Hall is conveniently located on West Virginia University’s Evansdale Campus. Here, students are a short walk from dining halls, recreational facilities, athletic fields, classrooms, and a PRT station.


You may wonder what the Lincoln Hall Coat of Arms means. Lincoln residents take pride in our Coat of Arms. The upper left shield represents Woodburn Hall (symbolic of the university as a whole). The upper right shield represents a book with diploma (symbolic of academic achievement). The lower left shield represents a dragon (symbolic from the Lincoln Family Crest). The lower right shield represents the windy mountains of West Virginia (symbolic of the state).
