LODGING ON WCSU’s WESTSIDE CAMPUS - GRASSO RESIDENCE HALL

Named after the former governor of Connecticut, Grasso Hall is one of two apartment-style residence halls on the Westside campus. Completed in the early 1980s, this building accommodates upper-class students during the academic year.

Each suite contains two double-occupancy bedrooms, one bathroom, living room, and kitchen area.

What's Provided?  Grasso bedrooms provide beds, desks, desk chairs, and closets for each resident.  The common living room area generally has a dining table and chairs.  Kitchens are outfitted with a stove, refrigerator, microwave and garbage disposal, along with cabinet space.  Dishware, etc., are not supplied.  

Grasso Hall also houses a large, multi-purpose lounge furnished with pool tables, a piano and a large-screen television. Laundry facilities also are available.

Westside Nature Preserve (WNP).  Grasso Residence Hall is located on the Westside Campus of WCSU, where participants will be able to hike the maintained trails of the Westside Nature Preserve. 

The Westside Nature Preserve (WNP) is a 33-acre parcel of eastern deciduous woodland/wetland found on the 364-acre Westside Campus of Western Connecticut State University.  The primary purpose of the WNP is to set aside a portion of the locally diverse fauna and flora for future generations. Subsidiary purposes are to provide an outdoor laboratory for studies of the environment and to be an educational resource for the University community and the larger community in which the University resides.
