Campus Housing for Five-year Bachelor/MBA or MSA, Pharmacy, and Law Students 

Western New England University is pleased to offer campus housing for post-baccalaureate students in the Gateway Village apartment complex. The capacity of an apartment varies from one to three residents. In living space with more than one occupant, each resident has a private bedroom.    

Occupancy may be for a 10-month (academic year), 11-month or 12-month timeframe. Assignment to College housing typically begins in early August and is a binding commitment for the established time frame. There are no prorated charges or refunds once the period of occupancy begins. The cost of utilities (heat, hot water, and electricity) and local telephone service is included with the applicable residency fee. Students who renew occupancy for the upcoming academic year and do not need housing for the summer may keep their belongings in the apartment at no additional charge.

Since MBA and MSA classes begin prior to August; residency is available in the Evergreen Village townhouses, at a weekly rate of $95.00, until relocation to housing in the Gateway Village apartment complex.

The apartment complex is within walking distance of all campus facilities, including the School of Law and College of Pharmacy, as well as a shopping plaza with stores that may serve a variety of needs. Additional shopping and services are readily available within approximately one mile of the campus.   

Each apartment is furnished by the University and has a kitchen with a range, sink, refrigerator, and storage cabinets. Furnishings vary according to the size of the accommodations and number of occupants and typically include the following items: upholstered chair(s) and/or couch, a coffee table and end table(s), lamps, twin bed, night stand, bureau, bookcase, desk and desk chair, kitchen table and chairs. Residents must bring their own dishware, cooking utensils, cleaning supplies, etc. Each apartment is wired for cable television access, Ethernet connection, and landline telephone voice mail. Long distance calls on the landline telephone are billed to each resident by the telephone company.   

Maintenance is provided by the department of Facilities Management through an online work order system. However, daily upkeep of the living space is the full responsibility of the student(s) residing there. Each resident will be assigned a campus box number as their mailing address. Mail boxes are located in the St. Germain Campus Center. On campus dining is available through a variety of voluntary meal plan options or ‘pay-as-you-go’ as well as a debit card arrangement on the student ID card.
 
Public Safety officers routinely patrol the campus by cruiser, on foot, and by bicycle and there is a system of closed circuit televisions and emergency phones throughout the campus. 

Each apartment is filled to the designated capacity. If two or more individuals wish to reside in the same apartment, each person must submit his/her own application, providing the name(s) of the preferred roommate(s).   

The residency charge (a per semester billing format) is applied to the student’s account with the University. With the exception of the housing verification payment, which is submitted to the Residence Life office, all other payments are provided to Student Administrative Services.

The Western New England University Post-Baccalaureate Student Housing Agreement provides detailed information on the provisions and expectations for residents. Please read it carefully prior to submitting an application.
