Residence Hall Living •
The majority of the freshmen dorms are hall style – you will share a room with one roommate, and your room is part of a common hall.
It’s a great way to meet new people, make friends and learn together!
Each hall has a dedicated Residential Advisor (RA) who is a specially-trained upperclassman that helps guide freshmen through their first year.
South Hall – WFU’s newest and most advanced residence hall.
Visit wfu.edu/housing for specific information on each Residence Hall.
Campus Dining • Information on University dining may be found on their website. • Dining Services employs a nutritionist who can meet with individual students to discuss meal options to meet the student’s needs (gaining or losing weight, etc). • Birthday cakes can be ordered and sent to students through Dining Services! A little love from home is always appreciated!
