Costs

The Office of Housing and Residential Life works hard to keep our rates at an affordable level.

Residence hall rates (Ghafari, Atchison, Towers Residential Suites, Thompson Home) and Furnished Apartments (Anthony Wayne Drive) are charged "per person".

Unfurnished apartment rates (Chatsworth and University Towers) are charged "per unit" and divided by the total number of assigned occupants.

Students must be of junior standing or higher, or 20 years or older to rent unfurnished apartments. Students who live in an apartment do not have to purchase a meal plan. Utilities such as cable, internet, electricity, water and waste collection are included in the cost of apartments at Wayne State University.

If you have any questions regarding your housing bill, please contact the central office via email (housing@wayne.edu) or phone (313-577-2116).

    Warrior Dollars

    Warrior Dollars are re-loadable dining dollars that can be used at any Dining Services retail location. These locations include Taco Bell, WingStop, Panda Express, Starbucks, Dunkin' Donuts, Einstein Bros. Bagels and more! Warrior Dollars can be purchased with your meal plan or added separately. Warrior Dollars come pre-loaded on weekly and Warrior Pass plans and additional warrior dollars can be added in increments of $50.

    Unused Warrior Dollars purchased in the fall term carry forward to the winter term and expire at the end of the winter term as listed in the dining agreement. Warrior Dollars purchased for the winter term do not carry forward and expire at the end of the winter term. Warrior Dollars purchased during the spring/summer semester are only valid during that term and expire at the end of the term. Review the applicable dining license agreement for meal periods and important dates as a meal plan/warrior dollar user.
