Recitation Hall

Recitation Hall will be the first building that you visit when you arrive at Wittenberg, as it houses the admission and financial aid offices.

Located off of W. Campus Drive and cutting through the oldest and some of the most beautiful parts of the university, Recitation Hall stands as one of the primary symbols of the university. Affectionately nicknamed "Reci" by students and faculty alike, it was the second building constructed on campus in 1883.  The monolithic building housed classes and the college literary societies, as well as the original campus chapel.

Today, Recitation serves as the university's main administration building with offices of the president, provost, registrar, university communications, and human resources. The annex behind the building was added during the 1950s and contains the university police/security headquarters, the campus switchboard, and the motor pool office which can be utilized by students for off-campus transportation.
