Commuter Life

Our campus is centrally located in downtown Raleigh, meaning there have plenty of housing options available [if you are not staying at home]. Students can live in one of several apartment complexes within walking distance of WPU or live farther from campus and use one of several major roads (including Wade Avenue and Capital Blvd.) that run right by campus.

Commuter students receive the full experience at WPU. Between opportunities with clubs and organizations, honor societies, intramural sports, arts, events and more, commuter students have plenty of options to get involved in the campus community. The Commuter Council also offers special programming and events to meet fellow commuters and bring the campus community together.
