Welcome to Wright State's Living Community

Students love their housing options at Wright State. They are comfortable, convenient, and what you see is what you get.   

A Wright Path resident means you go to classes at your community college, but come home to Wright State. You live in the same community as other Wright State students, so you have more opportunities to meet people. You can also get to know other Wright Path students by participating in a Wright Path living-learning community. 
 

Apply to Live at Wright State   

  • Join the Wright Path program.  
  • Once you're accepted into the program, visit your Wright Path portal and complete a Wright State housing application.  
  • Meet with financial aid staff at your community college to understand your available housing funds. If your financial aid will not cover Wright State housing, you have the option to pay Wright State directly. Payment plans may be available. 
  • To be eligible to live in Wright State campus housing, you must be in good financial, academic, and judicial standing at your community college.
