Washington Arms Hall is one of the farthest dormitories from the quad. It is located about a block behind Haven Hall and is close to many Syracuse University fraternity and sorority houses. It is about 20 minutes from the quad. Its location is not very convenient for its residents, if most of their classes in on the quad, but it is one of the nicer looking dormitories.
