Residential Experience

Students Congregating

Located in the cultural hub of Saint Louis, is Washington University’s Residential Housing. While living with us in Residential Life, we want your time here to be a home away from home. With that in mind, we work to create an on-campus experience unlike any other. Our continued investment in your experience can be seen through the spirit of our Residential Colleges, the intentionality of our Residential Communities, and our commitment to knowing each of you by name and story.

As a resident in our housing, you will experience firsthand what makes WashU a home. We have developed spaces and programs that foster an inclusive and diverse community, chances where you will have the opportunity to thrive, grow and learn, and where you can find your special place in community with others. Not only have we created the spaces, we have integrated professional staff, student staff, and faculty models that support your needs as a student. You are a part of the Residential Life family!!

While you’re here, get involved! Join an organization! Become a student leader! Create something of your own or participate in one of the many programs we offer throughout the year! We are here, ready, and available to help you find where your interests lie.
