A 1903 Jacobethan-revival structure built with a bequest from Hart Massey to serve as a women's residence for Victoria College students. It was named after the mother of the Methodist John Wesley. It is located at the northern fringe of the Victoria campus, north of Charles Street and facing on Avenue Road. It is said to have been the first university women's residence in Canada.
