Wilson Hall (Miami University) Miami University in Oxford, Ohio consists of old brick buildings. Some of these buildings were present not long after Miami University was established in 1809. Currently most of the buildings on campus either house classrooms or dorm rooms. Wilson Hall, located on Miami’s East Quad, is currently being used for dormitories for both male and female first-year students. Students of Miami did not reside in Wilson Hall when it was originally built as The Pines.
