Your Enhanced Learning Experience

Housing and Residence Life offers an enhanced living experience through several themed learning communities within our residence halls. These communities have been designed to group students with like interests in a living environment that helps them connect with each other and build meaningful relationships with students who have similar interests and goals.

Freshman Residency Program

Research across the United States over the last 30 years has found that students who live in university-provided housing perform better academically and enjoy a higher degree of satisfaction with their college experience more than students who live off-campus or commute. In recognition of the value of the living-learning experience associated with on-campus living, The W requires first-year students to live on campus in residence halls.
