Residence Life

Residence Life coordinates a positive, safe, and developmental housing experience for W&J students. As we are a residential campus, 98% of W&J students live on campus during their four years. First-year students are paired with roommates and are housed in first-year housing based on the living preferences they submit. All continuing students participate in the spring housing process to secure housing for the upcoming year. Resident Assistants and Community Advisors, upper-class trained para-professional staff, work with professional staff in residence life to provide support to students and to assist in building community.

Each year Residence Life recruits students to be Resident Assistants (RAs) in residential communities across campus. If you are interested in a fantastic leadership and growth opportunity, visit the RA Selection page to learn more!
