Residence Life

Welcome to Your Home Away From Home!

Going away to college is an exciting and sometimes challenging time in your life. Daily schedules, familiar people and the comforts of home are replaced by new routines, places and faces. This is why your residence hall community is such an important part of college life. The friendships you build with your roommate and neighbors provide a strong support system during your college years (and often throughout life!). The residence hall programs that you attend and the provided services will help you succeed in Western's exciting on-campus living community.
