University Residences

Return to: Student Services 

Edens Hall, 360-650-6565

University Residences engages students in diverse and inclusive, healthy, safe and sustainable communities that foster academic success and personal growth. Western’s residential experience is intentionally designed to help students learn about themselves, and how to live and work with others. Living on campus is completely optional, but new freshmen and transfer students who meet the housing deadlines are guaranteed housing their first year at Western; returning residents are accommodated on a space available basis. Extensive research demonstrates students living on campus earn higher grades and graduate in higher numbers than students living off campus. At WWU, about 93 percent of freshmen and 28 percent of transfer students choose to live on campus their first year. To be eligible for campus housing, undergraduates must be enrolled in a minimum of (10) credits per quarter, and graduate students must be enrolled in a minimum of (8) credits per quarter.
