Residence Halls

Discover Your Home

Welcome to The W! Each year we welcome around 550 students to the on-campus community.

Whether you are a first-time freshman or a transfer student, we look forward to meeting you and when you move into your residence halls.

All students must complete their housing contract to be assigned a space. Assignments for incoming students and transfers are made in the order we receive your completed contract, so the earlier your contract is submitted, the earlier you are assigned in the process.

Applying to live on campus is an easy and efficient online process tailored for the student.
