WSU Freshmen Housing

If you’re a freshman under 20 years old (and not married), you’ll live on campus for your first year at WSU. You get to choose from 17 different residence halls or dozens of fraternity and sorority chapters.

Plus, we’ll help you connect your new living group friends to your academic life with the First-Year Focus program. When you’re going to your first college classes with people who already live right next door, you’ll get a better start.

Residence halls

Residence halls pair on-campus living with a community experience. You can tour all the halls at the Housing and Residence Life website.

Specific emphasis communities

Some halls allow students with similar academic interests or backgrounds form a unique community.

  • Scholars
    Many Honors College students live in Honors Hall and Scott-Coman Hall, where they help each other take their college education to new levels of inquiry and learning.
  • International
    The international student community in McCroskey Hall can help ease the transition to life on an American campus and increase cultural understanding through relationships with fellow residents of different nations, races, and religions.
  • Science, engineering, and mathematics
    The College of Engineering and the College of Arts and Sciences encourage all students interested in science, engineering, and mathematics fields to sign up for Stephenson Hall. As a Stephenson resident, you’ll get Freshman Focus courses that are closer to your area of interest.

Fraternities and sororities

Go with the Greek system and find a tight group of friends, academic support, community involvement, and lifelong networking benefits. Most of WSU’s residential fraternities and sororities are approved for freshmen.
