Bayliss-Henninger Hall

Bayliss & Henninger Halls

Bayliss-Henninger Mud Volleyball

Bayliss and Henninger Halls are home to nearly 400 residents each in a co-ed environment joined in the middle by Bayliss/Henninger Dining Center. Bay/Henn (as commonly referred to by students) houses first year students and was renovated in 2001. Named after the second president of WIU, Bayliss Hall is known for establishing very strong floor and hall communities that demonstrate high involvement in activities such as hall government and Homecoming week events.

Bay-Henn is also known for their strong campus programming. Mud Volleyball is an annual tradition to kick-off the first weekend and is planned by the students living in Bay-Henn. This large 120 team event raises money for the local Fire Department Training Facility.
