    Guest Housing Options

    As an intern or guest of the university, we welcome you to stay with us at Wright State University. Our guest housing program is designed to provide clean, safe, and friendly housing for guests of the university and companies within the greater Dayton area. The guest housing program rents out rooms on a per-bed-space 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 four-bedroom, two-bathroom, furnished apartments available, which will be shared with other guests.

      Frequently Asked Questions

      • Am I required to share the apartment with other guests?

        Yes, all guest housing apartments are shared units. Depending on the type of apartment you select, you will be assigned from one to three roommates.

      • Does Wright State provide guest housing for families?

        If a space is available, we can accommodate families.

      • Are meal plans available for guests?

        Meal plans are not available for guests. However, all apartments come furnished with a full kitchen, and a grocery store is located within walking distance to our on-campus apartment communities.

      • Are kitchen supplies provided?

        Residence Life and Housing does not provide any kitchen supplies. Any dishes, cookware, or silverware should be brought with you or acquired once you arrive at campus. We suggest contacting your assigned roommates to arrange the best way to provide these items.

      • Will I need to bring my own bedding and towels?

        We can provide linens, if needed. If you need linens provided for your stay, please indicate this information when filling out the guest housing application. Otherwise, you are responsible for providing your own.

      • Is internet or cable service provided?

        Yes, cable and internet service are both included in your monthly rental rate. Internet is provided through Wright State University's wireless network. Wired connections are available with a Wright State username and password. Some of our affiliate internship programs at AFRL and WPAFB provide this to their interns. Check with your internship to see if you will be granted Wright State computer accounts.

      • The security deposit is $250. Why is only $200 refundable?

        Residence Life and Housing staff work very hard during the summer months to ensure our apartments are cleaned and prepared before the summer guest housing season begins, and after the season ends. As such, we retain $50 of the security deposit as facilities and redecorating fee in order to cover any facilities-related costs associated with cleaning and preparing the guest housing units before you arrive and after you leave.

      • I am unable to check in during the times provided in my check-in instructions. What should I do?

        Guest housing staff is available on-call 24/7. If you need to arrange a check-in time outside our regularly scheduled hours, please contact the housing office during business hours at or 937-775-3372. Advance notice is required for after-hours check-ins.
