Discover your new home! For undergraduate students, living on campus is all about variety as their options progress from the spacious rooms of our traditional halls, to suites, apartments, and townhouses. Apartment housing is also offered to graduate, doctoral, and law students through the Gateway Village Apartments as available.
Why live on campus? As a residential student, you will be an active participant in your residence area activities, connecting with other students, building a sense of community, and making yourself feel at home at Western New England.
Because the value of the Western New England University educational experience is found not only inside the classroom but also in the broader campus community, Western New England University requires all first-time, full-time undergraduate students to live on campus for their first and second years at the University. This policy is effective fall 2019 and does not impact students who enrolled prior to fall 2019. For more information about this policy, visit our Living on Campus page and review the Residency Requirement.
Welcome to Your Home-Away-From-Home

We are also ready to assist graduate students with on-campus living to help you become an integral part of our campus community.
