Whiting Hall

Whiting Hall, a co-ed, suite style residence hall for upper-class students, was named in honor of Miss Tossie Permelia Frances Whiting, a former Dean of Women and an English teacher at Virginia State University.

This three story residence hall was erected in 1957. Whiting Hall is the fifth women's residence hall to be built on Virginia State's campus and is equipped with an central air conditioned lobby where students can relax, laundry facilities, and a computer lab that has Internet access and word processing capabilities. The rooms in Whiting Hall are connected by a singular bathroom, forming 2-party suites and some 4-party suites.

Residence Directors (RD), who are fulltime professional staff, are responsible for the overall supervision of the residence halls. Resident Assistants (RA) and Graduate Assistants function as paraprofessionals and assist the RD in their duties.
