Residential Life

Living on campus is an important part of the Washington College experience, giving you the opportunity to meet new people, experience new ideas and develop important study habits and life skills.

All first and second year students are required to live on campus. Junior and senior students in good social and academic standing may appeal to live off-campus, although the majority of our students choose to live on-campus for their entire academic career. About 85% of all undergraduate students live on-campus, helping to make our community both engaging and diverse.
