Residence Life and Housing actively pursues the mission of Wright State University. By effectively utilizing resources, we offer quality student-centered activities, services, and facilities. Through diverse, inclusive, and supportive environments, we intentionally provide opportunities and challenges to foster student growth and learning.
We highly encourage students to live in one of our Theme and Interest Floors. All of our programs are offered in our Residence Hall Communities. All programs are dedicated to supplemental learning with outside of the classroom experiences. A Resident Assistant will be assigned to these floors based on having the same interest or major as the students and will provide resources, activities and services that will help students become more engaged with their college/interest.
