Residential Life

You can expect more than just a place to relax in between classes or catch up on sleep – living here is an opportunity to engage others, learn in the community, and thrive in downtown Raleigh.

That’s why we have a three-year residency requirement. Learning and living in a diverse community of peers on campus is a transformative experience that will prepare you for a successful career and life.

The Vie @Raleigh

The Vie provides students with a true apartment-style living experience. Located 15 miles from campus, WPU students are shuttled to and from the Vie seven (7) days per week (excluding campus breaks).

Students live in single-unit bedrooms and share a living room, kitchen, and bathroom with their apartment mates. The Vie also offers additional amenities such as a fitness center, yoga studio, computer lab, and swimming pool.

The Vie is treated as on-campus housing, so Resident Assistants are assigned to each building to assist students. A full-time WPU staff member also lives at the apartment complex.
