Create your home away from home while you complete your degree. Research shows that students who live on campus have higher GPAs and are more likely to graduate. On-campus housing means that students are just steps away from everything that they need, including:

  • Classes and studios
  • Woody’s Café
  • University library
  • Computer labs
  • Staff and faculty offices
  • Academic support services
  • Associated Students of Woodbury University events and programming
  • Basketball courts
  • Fitness center
  • Pool
