Residence Life and Housing


Tour all the options in our residence halls and apartments. Wright State University is surrounded by hottest new restaurants and activities, from ax-throwing to bowling to escape rooms to nationally ranked coffee houses. Hike the path in the woods around campus or bike, run, or walk some of the 300 miles of bike trails. Or maybe downtown is your scene—we're only eight miles from downtown Dayton, where you can find restaurants, comedy and dance clubs, an active arts scene, and more. 

At Wright State University, you'll find comfy study and meeting spaces. Grab a coffee at one of the five shops across campus, eat at the Hangar or Union Grill, or lounge on the Quad on sunny days. You can join one of our 180 student organizations and clubs or join fitness classes at the gym, an intramural sports league, or an outdoor camping trip.

Want to Visit Current Students Living On Campus?

There are many options available to people who would like to visit students living on campus. If roommates agree, there are online forms available for residents of certain communities to have weekend guests. Even if that option is not available, visitors have easy access to hotels within walking distance of campus.

Guest Parking

Open parking is available for visitors in all commuter lots starting at 4 p.m Friday through the weekend. For all other times, you can obtain a day visitor parking permit from the visitor booth in Lot 2 for white-lined spaces in Lots 4 or 6. For overnight visitors, you can get a parking pass at the visitor booth between 8 a.m. and 8 p.m. Monday through Thursday, and between 8 a.m. and 3 p.m. on Friday, or by emailing the Customer Care Center. Visitor parking permits lasting longer than two days at a time must be approved by Residence Life and Housing. To ensure all on-campus residents have parking, visitors cannot park in any residential parking lots.
