We welcome you to stay with us at Wright State University. Our guest housing program is designed to provide a clean, safe, and friendly campus stay for guests of the university and the companies within the metropolitan area. The guest housing program rents out rooms on a per person-per bed structure. Many of our guests will only be in the Dayton area for the summer and want to avoid the difficulty of finding a furnished apartment. We have 2 bedroom furnished apartments available. To help reduce the cost of housing, we will assign roommates using the preference survey forms. As your host, we are always available to assist you. Please contact us if you have any questions at (937) 775-4239.

Rates are listed on the Guest Housing Pre-registration form and are based on occupancy and length of stay. All campus housing is considered to be NON-SMOKING, so guests will need to refrain from smoking within the units and 15 feet of all entrances to buildings.

  • Air Conditioned
  • Single or Double occupancy Apartments
  • Furnished with twin beds, desks, desk chairs, kitchen table, couch and arm chair
