Welcome To Ware College House

Ware College House is buzzing with programs, groups and committees. The House sponsors trips to museums, performing arts events, amusement parks and more. From numerous hall events to weekly dinners with interesting people to open mic nights, the House is a happening place. Ware Family Dinners on Monday with a hot, hearty meal, and Sunday brunch in McClelland Hall are popular recurring events. The size and configuration of rooms and suites in Ware vary greatly, though everyone loves being in the heart of the Quad and campus. Ware boasts a library, music practice rooms, a fitness room, McClelland Café, computer labs, study rooms, seminar rooms, a central lounge with pool and foosball tables, and a rooftop video and gaming lounge. In addition to our spectacular building and amenities, you can borrow a bicycle!
