Welcome Students

More and more Wayne State students are discovering how living on campus is helping them achieve personal and academic success. With less than a five-minute walk to classes, libraries, a 24-hour computer lab, the Student Center and the Mort Harris Recreation and Fitness Center, living on campus offers a convenience that you can’t find anywhere else. Be a part of this growing campus community where residents are establishing new friendships, exploring the community and building new traditions.
