Why Live West?

Going West is about the complete college experience. UWG believes that those just beginning the journey are more involved with campus life if they live here. After being admitted into UWG, your next step should be to complete the Housing Contract. National research has shown that there are a number of benefits for students living on campus:

  • More contact with faculty members and other students
  • More involvement with student organizations and the campus community
  • Higher retention from your first to second year
  • Higher grades and more credit hours per semester
  • Meeting people with different backgrounds and histories
  • Improved confidence and willingness to express themselves in a positive manner

  • Transfer Students

    Housing is available to Transfer students on a space available basis.
    Transfer students are not required to live on campus. That said, living on campus has many benefits that transfer students will find valuable when you start your journey with the Pack!
    Typically, transfer students are assigned to suites/apartments with continuing students.

  • Graduate Students

    Graduate students are welcome to live on campus among our undergrads; however, we do not have grad specific housing.
