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 Managed Housing) or a suite-style room (USH Affiliated Housing), you'll literally live in the middle of everything.
New Student Orientation
What to expect: One full day packed with info and fun! Meet fellow Golden Rams, review your class schedule with academic advisors, learn about resources and support services, and explore your new campus.
When: June & July
Ten orientation days are offered in June and July based on academic college.
