Housing for upperclassmen
After your freshman year, new options open up for you at WSU. You can always stick with the regular residence halls; a lot of students do. But if you want to change things up a little after you've settled into life in Pullman, you've got options.
Age-restricted residence halls
Three WSU residence halls are set aside for students ages 19-20 (or older). They give you the benefits of dorm life plus a bit more quiet and privacy than the all-ages halls. And all the suites have fridges and kitchenettes, so dining-hall meal plans are optional (but do you really want to do your own cooking if you don't have to?).

There are a lot of advantages to university apartments. You're still living with fellow students, but you don't share a building with hundreds of other people. You're still within walking distance (or a quick bus ride) from central campus and you still get the fast campus Internet connection.
You have more independence and privacy. No more communal bathrooms. No more dining hall eating (unless you want it). And the University is probably the best landlord you'll ever have.
WSU also has apartments for married students, families and grad students.
Fraternities and sororities
Go with the Greek system and find a tight group of friends, academic support, community involvement, and lifelong networking benefits. You don't have to join as a freshman -- WSU's residential fraternities and sororities accept new members at any stage.
