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.


Mission Statement

Housing & Residential Life at Wayne State fosters student learning and success through engaging residents in an intentional living-learning community. Supported by safe, comfortable and convenient residence hall, apartment and dining environments, residents grow in self-awareness and cross-cultural understanding as they practice social and group development as members of a diverse group of Wayne State learners.
