Student Resources

Office of Residential Life

University of the West provides students an opportunity to live where they learn (no, that doesn’t mean you can roll out a sleeping bag in the library). Convenient, safe and affordable, UWest housing offers a unique opportunity to fully experience our vibrant campus life and community. Living on campus also puts you steps away from faculty and staff, campus resources, and student services. Students who live on campus spend less time commuting, and more time preparing for success.
