The residence halls at Westminster provide you with a lot more than a place to sleep. Featuring a variety of housing options, social activities, and academic services, our residence halls offer a complete living environment—one designed to help you meet whatever goals you set for yourself at Westminster.
Our residence life staff will strive to help you integrate your academic and social life, promote an environment that supports the value of strong academics and good citizenship, and uphold respect for gender, ethnic and cultural diversity. The residence life staff is specifically trained to assist students with the challenges that sometimes come with living in a residential community.
A strength of the Westminster College experience is the close-knit community that exists on campus. With over 90 percent of Westminster students living on campus or in college fraternity housing, it's easy to form lots of close friendships -not just with students, but with professors as well.
Residence Life provides a high-quality residential experience that supports both the academic mission of the college and Student Affairs mission by providing safe and comfortable residential facilities, cultivating a culture of care and shared responsibility in maintaining a positive living and learning community, supporting individual student development, and guiding each student toward a sense of belonging.
