Lifestyle

What do you want from your college experience? Some people want a chance to be a part of dynamic research through science or engineering projects that can improve people's lives. Others are eager to develop leadership and networking skills as they make the campus a great place to live and learn. Some value the bonds of teamwork and collaboration forged through a student-athlete experience. And many seek to explore the world from the launch pad of our supportive community. Western New England University offers the intimate learning environment and the breadth of academic and cocurriular offerings to give you all of these experiences and more!

Your Residence Options Change with You

Over the course of four years, you will change. That's why we have created a residential life experience that changes with you. Your first year is about becoming immersed in our community, so you will share a traditional room in our campus Quad. Sophomore year you can live in suites to expand your connections. Junior and senior years you will spend in apartments and townhouses as you learn to cook and manage a household as you prepare for life after Western New England University.
