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 Owned) or a suite-style room (USH), you'll literally live in the middle of  everything.
