New housing options open for you at WSU after your freshman year. You can always stick with regular residence halls – 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 19-20 or 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 20 and older and features maximum privacy for residents.
Orton Hall is for students 19 and older and is known for its quiet atmosphere.
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. You’re still within walking distance (or a quick bus ride) from central campus, and you still get the fast campus Internet connection.
But you also get additional privacy and personal space. 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.
For general apartment living, check out Chief Joseph Village, Chinook 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.
