    Select your Residency

    The majority of our students live on campus. Participating in the residential community on campus, while also working on campus, is a critical component to a WWC education. Students who live on campus have been shown to be more engaged in campus life, therefore contributing positively to their experience in college, identity development, and in most cases achieving higher GPAs.

    There are a few situations in which we allow new students to live off campus and commute to classes – these exemptions and policy details are available in the application linked below.Day Students do not have to pay Room & Board but are assessed a $500 fee per semester and billed per meal in campus dining facilities and/or may purchase flex dollars.

    Residence Life

    Warren Wilson offers a variety of different living arrangements for new students, including some interesting themed communities within the residence halls.Learn more about residence life and themed housing, andfind out about our residence halls.

    The Office of Residence Life supports your on-campus living experience. Our crew of Assistant Directors and Resident Assistants (RAs) provide support, programming, and events. Programs and events are designed to help you get to know others on your floor and in your building and to gain new skills and perspectives.

    Your Roommate & Housing Assignment

    As a new student, you are assigned a room by Residence Life but you are able to select your own roommate. If you do not select a roommate one will be selected for you based on your responses to the Room Selection Survey located in your Housing Application. The survey will ask you about your habits, preferences, interests, and lifestyle.

    To connect with other students and find a potential roommate Residence Life suggests joining the WWC Fall 2022 Facebook group and the Fall 2022 Discord server (invitations to these are emailed to you, or ask your Admissions Counselor).

    We make every effort to honor your preferences and place you in an environment where you’ll thrive, but living in community will involve compromise at times.

    Renter’s Insurance

    We highly recommend that all students cover their belongings with a renter’s insurance policy. Some parents may be able to claim their students belongings while at college on their homeowners insurance policies as well.
