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.
