WSU Upperclassmen Housing

Stay connected as your education continues.

New housing options open for you at WSU after your freshman year. You can stick with regular residence halls–as space allows–and many students do. But if you want to change things up, you’ve got options.

Age-restricted residence halls

Two WSU residence halls are set aside for students 19 and older. They give you the benefits of hall life with a bit more quiet and privacy than the all-ages halls. And all of the suites have fridges and kitchenettes, so dining-hall meal plans are optional.

McEachern Hall is for students 19 and older and features maximum privacy for residents.

Orton Hall is for students 19 and older and is known for its quiet atmosphere.

WSU apartments

Living in university apartments combines the benefits of on-campus life with off-campus independence.

You’re still living with fellow students, but you don’t share a building with hundreds of other people. 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. And you’re still within walking distance (or a quick bus ride) from central campus , so no added commuting.

For general apartment living, check out Chief Joseph VillageChinook Village, Columbia Village, and Nez Perce Village.

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.
