A new ‘Way’

It’s official! The former location of south Hoyt Drive is now Wrighton Way.

Wrighton Way welcomes visitors to the Danforth Campus and honors Chancellor Mark S. Wrighton and his many contributions to the university during his tenure. Wrighton will conclude his term as chancellor May 31.

Comprising a vehicular drive, pedestrian walkways and a green central court, the new Wrighton Way is the southern approach to the Gary M. Sumers Welcome Center as well as the south entrance to the East End Parking Facility.
