First-year students who attend Western Oregon University within one year of high school graduation are required to live on campus. As a result, WOU provides up to four residence halls specifically designed for freshman living experiences. Heritage Hall and Landers Hall feature community living options which include double rooms, shared community bathrooms, and public areas for group activities. In addition, this year, the suite style rooms of Barnum Hall will complement the green spaces of our newest residence hall, Ackerman Hall opened just last Fall, in 2010.
Western Oregon University offers a variety of living spaces for upperclass students. For 2011-2012, Upperclass students will be housed in the suite style rooms of Butler Hall, Gentle Hall, and in single, double and deluxe double rooms in the themed communities opening in our newest hall, Ackerman Hall, and the Arbor Park Apartments , which are comprised of Cedar, Noble and Spruce Halls. These coeducational halls each house 70 to 300 students. The upperclass halls are managed by a full-time professional area coordinator and a staff of resident assistants.
