Fraser Hall

In 1978, with over 500 students enrolled, TWC was bursting at the seams. A new women’s residence was needed to accommodate the school’s continued growth.

Fraser Hall was named for Simon Fraser, a fur trader and explorer who navigated the Fraser River in 1808 on behalf of the North West Company.
