Thompson Hall houses approximately 1,000 students and is home to Thompson Dining Center. The Thompson Hall lobby was renovated in 2013. Thompson is available to freshmen, sophomores, juniors, and seniors. The hall also gives freshmen the opportunity to live on First Year Experience (FYE) floors where freshmen students will live and transition into college life with other first-year students. Amenities include a 24-hour computer lab, a convenience store, electronic classroom, three conference rooms, and a 24-hour lounge space with flat-screen TVs and a foosball table.

Simply click on the ruler in the bottom left hand corner, click the "+" sign on the screen, and then click any two points in the room to measure anything you want. You'll also find out where to get your WIU swag, your bedding, and much more by clicking on the purple circles you will see throughout the tour.
