The Wilson House is home to the masters of Wiess College and was dedicated to William L. Wilson, a longtime resident associate, on March 11, 2011. The 3,800-square-foot two-story house was built to be closer to Wiess College and to meet LEED Silver Standards. Green features include:

  • Long, broad windows spanning the wall that allow for maximum sunlight entrance throughout the day in order to minimize electricity use.
  • Air conditioning unit for a typical family but also connected to supplementary units that can be switched on during large events in order to be more energy-efficient.
  • Air conditioning unit to serve as a heat source for the house's water.
  • Double paneled windows engineered to let light in but keep heat out.
  • Trellises built over the southern courtyard to reduce heat.
  • Polished and waxed concrete spanning the entire first floor.
  • Energy star certified appliances.
  • Low volume toilets and a front loading washer and dryer to reduce water waste.
  • Drip irrigation system to efficiently water greenery by specifically targeting specific plants.
