Your Squad is waiting
Housing and Residence Life
Our residence halls are the heartbeat of WSU. And our students will agree. Choose from co-ed housing, themed residence halls, single rooms, double rooms, suite-style living, and more. All our living options have shared spaces for studying and connecting.
“Living on campus my freshman year was one of my favorite experiences. I loved living steps away from my friends. We became our own community.”
It's a Fact: Living on campus leads to better grades and a more satisfying college experience.
Easy access to classes and campus resources.
Safe, secure living with all the amenities.
All your friends in one place.
Entertainment & Lifestyle
What do you want to do? One of the biggest benefits of living on campus is the opportunity to get involved. Our Residence Housing Association and Campus Life work together to fill your free time with activities and events. And when you live on campus, you get to experience it all.
Campus life meets city life
The WSU campus is nestled in the heart of the city of Winona, and our location puts students in the center of the action. You’ll be downtown adjacent and close to all of the city’s amenities with the benefits of living on campus. Win-win.
We're Looking for leaders. Do more than just live in a residence hall, help run it. As a Hall Council Member, you’ll work closely with the Hall Director and the RA staff to plan social events that help to connect residence hall communities across campus.
Food for Thought
You gotta eat. We’ve got you covered on the food front. From made-to-order meals to late-night snack attacks, your on-campus meal plan will give you the fuel you need, when you need it.
Health & Wellness, Security, and Transportation
Entertainment & Amenities
Whatever you need. From board games to movies to jumper cables to tool kits, if you need it, we have it. All the little things that make college feel like home. Choose from over 8,000 resources across campus.
Health & Wellness
Stay healthy and happy. If an active lifestyle is important to you, then get ready to get moving. Think sand volleyball courts, swimming pools, fitness centers, hiking trails, massages... oh my.
Go outside and play. Bump, set, and spike on one of four sand volleyball courts. Or you can rent outdoor games from the front desk. Play ball!
Integrated Wellness Complex
The ultimate fitness complex (and one of the busiest places on campus). Shoot some hoops, hit the track, take a fitness class, crush some cardio, or hit the free weights. Need some help getting started? How about your own personal trainer? A little sore? Schedule a massage. This is ground zero for good health.
Lourdes Hall Fitness Center
Easy access for students living on West Campus, Lourdes Hall Fitness Center has everything you need for a quick workout: elliptical machines, treadmills, and Stair Masters, plus, a heated indoor pool.
Safe and sound. Round-the-clock campus security via patrols and surveillance cameras. Blue light emergency phones, too. Need an escort after dark? Call Campus Security and a security guard will get you where you need to go.
Where do you want to go? Choose a sustainable transportation mode that will get you there safely.
