We know that housing can be an important decision in your college experience. Given the current pandemic, please be aware that the Housing Department is following guidelines from local, state, and federal Public Health authorities to determine housing availability for Fall 2021-Spring 2022. At this time, only Singles and Doubles are being offered.

Note:  All students living on-campus must be fully vaccinated.

North Hall is a three-story, air-conditioned student residence hall separated into 11 community sections. Each section houses up to 15 students, who share a community kitchen and bathroom. North Hall also has a common central lounge, drink and snack machines, and laundry facilities.

South Hall

South Hall

South Hall is a traditional single-story, coed student residence built around a courtyard in the center of the campus. Rooms are not air-conditioned but are equipped with ceiling fans. Separate community bathrooms are conveniently located in the male and female hallways. South Hall is equipped with laundry facilities, drink and snack machines, and a common kitchen. South Hall is also home to the Fitness Center.


Why should you live on campus?

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
