We understand the value of your families and partners. We also feel what it’s like to be an adult student. So we offer a special place for all of you to live (it’s called the Village).

Apartment-style housing units are popular among transfer students as well as military students wishing to have their own room (but not sacrificing the social aspect of living on campus). 

Living On Campus

At Wright State, living on campus is all about options.

Freshmen can choose from our Residence Halls: Hamilton Hall, The Woods, and the Honors Community. No matter where you choose to live, your room will have features like a microwave, refrigerator, air conditioning, cable TV, wireless and high-speed network connections, and laundry facilities. 

Transfer and Adult students can choose from our featured apartment communities: Forest Lane, College Park, University Park, and The Village.  Plus you can always choose from the residence halls if you are looking for the traditional housing experience.

Ready to live on campus? Apply for housing once you have been admitted.
