Residential Life



Picking out a color scheme for your dorm room or figuring out who's bringing the TV are important parts of the college experience. Living on campus teaches you to work with others and be a functioning part of a bigger community.

With this in mind, William Peace University requires all first-year, sophomore, and junior students to live on campus or university-affiliated housing. Students who are married, have dependents, or live with their parent(s) or legal guardian(s) within 30 miles of campus are allowed to stay off campus. On-campus parking is available to all WPU students with a parking permit.

WPU has six residential halls on campus and off campus university-affiliated apartments. Rooms style ranging from traditional rooms to four-person suites and apartment-style options for upper-class and transfer students. Every residence hall includes common areas, free basic cable, wired and wireless Internet access and no-cost laundry that will text you when it's finished! To learn more about the residence halls on campus, simply check out the video below.

noneResident Assistants are assigned to each hall to assist with questions, foster group discussions and organize events to meet other students. RAs help students learn more about themselves and enjoy the social, cultural and educational offerings WPU and Raleigh have to offer.

In addition to feeling closer to the WPU community, on-campus living also offers students a short commute to your classes, the on-campus theatre, library, athletic center and snack shop. There's even a Krispy Kreme shop right around the corner for late night runs when the Hot and Now sign turns on.



Your security is our top priority. Residential hall entrances are locked 24-hours a day. Public Safety Officers and residence hall staff help secure buildings and enforce safety and rules each evening. Campus Public Safety also patrols the campus 24 hours a day and provides walking escorts across campus after dark.
