Thompson Hall

One of the most recognizable buildings on the WSU Pullman campus—and it’s all Arts & Sciences inside.

Residents include the School of Languages, Cultures, & Race, the College of Arts & Sciences Office of the Dean, and a Department of Digital Technology & Culture computer lab. 

Now you know…

  • The iconic red bricks were made locally from clay deposits found just down the street, behind what is now Stevens Hall. 
  • The second tower is not unfinished. An 1893 Pullman Tribune article about the construction notes that “of the two towers in the building one terminates with a deck to receive the meteorological instruments.” 
  • The Language Learning Resource Lab offers a host of options for listening, watching, learning—and free tutoring!
