Living on Campus
As a resident student at Worcester State University, you will be part of a lively and diverse community of approximately 1,600 full-time students who live on campus. You’ll make lifelong friendships and share a college experience that will have a lasting impact on your life.
We are committed to providing you with an inclusive living-learning environment that supports your academic and personal aspirations. We're here for you every day to respond to your physical, emotional, and developmental needs. Our residence halls offer a wide variety of comfortable living options, from traditional to contemporary. Each hall is staffed with a professional, full-time, live-in residence director who is on call 24/7 year-round. Each wing or living area is staffed with a resident assistant. All residence hall staff assists with relevant, fun programming that will help shape your academic and social growth.

Bedrooms are co-ed by room, and residents share gender-specific bathrooms. While the majority of bedrooms are designed for two people, there also are a very limited number of single and triple occupancy bedrooms available. A laundry room is located on the 1st floor, along with 2 lounge areas.
