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 one 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 or 4 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.



Housing Available

Our guest housing season for 2011 will run from June 13 through August 20, 2011. All guests must complete their checkouts by Friday, 11 a.m. on August 20.  Before and after this window of time, the units are under housing contract to WSU students and are not available. 2012 is a transition year for Wright State. WSU is changing over from quarters to semesters. The apartment turnover period has been greatly decreased. NO EXTENTIONS OR LATE CHECKOUTS ARE POSSIBLE.  Guest housing will be held in the Forest Lane Apartments and University Park Apartments.  Individual guests will be charged the single occupancy rate if they do not want to share the apartment with another guest. If you desire the double rate and do not have a roommate, we will assign another guest (same gender) to share the unit with you. 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 within 15 feet of all entrances to buildings.
