Living On Campus

90% of first year students live on campus and it's no wonder why - with residence halls in the heart of North Campus, you're just steps away from dining, classrooms, and campus life.

Whether you choose to live in a traditional dorm room (WCU Managed Housing) or a suite-style room (USH Affiliated Housing), you'll literally live in the middle of everything.

The 2024-25 first year and transfer student housing application opens in March 2024
