Welcome to Residence Life at PWSC

The decision to live on-campus further enhances positive learning experiences as seamless learning environments are created between the classroom and the residences, and students feel more at home within the institution. College residency provides students with a multitude of supportive resources, social outlets, significant peer interactions, and leadership opportunities that commuter students do not have access to. Residential students live amongst neighbors who share a similar commitment to their higher education and benefiting from a living environment conducive to learning and personal development.

Save up to 30% on housing

New this fall: the more credits you take at PWSC, the more money you can save on student housing. PWSC students can now save up to 30% on housing costs. Part-time students now qualify to live in student housing.

Please Note: Your initial credit load category will be determined at the time of enrollment to calculate an estimate of housing charges for your account, but your credit load category will not be finalized until the add/drop deadline. If at the time of the add/drop deadline your credit load has changed to place you in a different category, your student account will be adjusted to reflect the difference. This means additional costs may be added to your account should you drop classes.
