Gannon/Goldsworthy

Gannon-Goldsworthy Hall, on the south side of campus, is an energetic, diverse and sociable residence hall. Since this primarily is a first-year hall, there is a culture of building connections for the students who live here.

Gannon-Goldsworthy houses WSU’s Lead the Legacy living learning community, which connects first generation students with support to be successful at WSU. Residents of this hall also benefit from on-site tutoring in the hall lobby.

If you are interested in joining Lead the Legacy, please email legacy@wsu.edu.  

Key Events:
• Traditionally, Gannon-Goldsworthy hosts a hall cup event where floors compete against each other to win the hall cup, a large trophy displayed in the Goldsworthy lobby.

If you are interested in joining Lead the Legacy, please email legacy@wsu.edu.

    General Move-In Information

    Official WSU move-in begins on Wednesday, August 16. While residence hall contracts begin on Saturday, August 12, WSU highly encourages students to arrive for move-in on August 16 to begin their successful college experience with Week Of Welcome events beginning that night.

    This year, the WSU community and departments across campus collaborate to develop to best possible options to facilitate the thousands of students and cars that arrive on move-in day. Your arrival time, the hall you’re moving into, and the particular day you arrive, all play a factor in your experience. Those moving in will need to sign up and indicate their planned arrival time. Please complete the form located at https://movein.wsu.edu/signup

    Please plan to come with patience and know that there will probably be some wait times to get into your unloading zone. Hundreds of volunteers, Housing & Residence Life staff, and Parking & Transportation Services staff want your move-in to be smooth and low stress. They are easily identifiable and happy to help. Please keep in mind that pets are not allowed in the residence halls when moving in.

    You can find more information about move-in at https://movein.wsu.edu/ Information will also be shared and live tweeted on move-in day, please follow us @reslifewsu and use #WSUWOW.

    Specific Instructions for Gannon/Goldsworthy Hall

    Checking In:

    Gannon/Goldsworthy Hall is considered a single residential community that encompasses both Gannon Hall and Goldsworthy Hall. Check-in for both halls are in the same location and directions are the same.

    Enter the main back entrance to Gannon/Goldsworthy by the Southside Dining Center entrance and head up the Goldsworthy ramps to the Gannon/Goldsworthy Hall lobby. There will be signs telling you where to check in. While you are checking in, you will receive your key, get information about hall government, and meet various hall staff members.

    Students should enter through the hall's main entrance and check in with your CougarCard/photo ID at the front desk.

    Volunteers and carts will be available to assist you in unloading your car and moving belongings up to the room. We ask that you have someone begin unloading your car as your student checks in and receives their key.

    Note: If you live on the 1st floor of Gannon, 1st floor of Goldsworthy, or 2nd floor of Goldsworthy we ask that you do not use the elevators to move-in as there is ramp access to your floor. We are also requesting that elevators are only used to move heavy objects and carts to higher floors.

    Bed Lofting and bunking tools and parts can be received from the Custodial Room 78 in the lower level of the Gannon/Goldsworthy Hall center building.

    Extra recycling containers are brought in specifically for move-in. Please pay attention to where you are disposing of garbage versus recycling.

    For hanging items on your walls in Gannon/Goldsworthy, please use blue painters tape for posters, and 3M Command strips to hang pictures. If you use 3M Command strips, please do not remove the strips; our staff will remove them over the summer if the room needs to be painted. Please do not use double-sided mounting products, permanent mounting products, blue mounting putty, tacks or push pins, masking tape, or duct tape.

    Getting to Gannon/Goldsworthy:
    When you arrive in Pullman make sure you enter the WSU campus from the South entrance of the University (from Main Street/270). Gannon-Goldsworthy only has an entrance on the south side of Stadium way so if you come in from the North you will have to find a way to U-Turn.
    After you turn onto Stadium Way you will see the Stephenson Towers (Big brick buildings) you stayed at during Alive! on your right. Go ahead and drive through the first stop light. After you go through the first stop light you will see a sign that says "Gannon/Goldsworthy" on your right. Continue driving past two smaller driveways until you reach the third driveway right before a bridge.

    There should be a parking attendant in an orange vest directing traffic. Turn right and drive down the hill to the small Green 3 parking lot. This lot is right in front of the main entrance to Southside Dining Center

    Parking:
    During move-in, Gannon/Goldsworthy Hall Hall will designate active unloading zones on our basketball courts, lawns, and parking lot areas. We will then have cars exit underneath Gannon Hall through a tunnel. Hall Staff will ask you for your name, room number, and a contact phone number. They will then put the information on the front of your car with your arrival time. Note: If your vehicle is over 7' 8" please contact a staff member for an alternative parking plan.

    Due to the large amount of residents moving into Gannon/Goldsworthy Hall and the limited amount of parking spaces, all of the lots and parking spaces around the hall are active unloading zones only. We ask that all students and families park their cars in event parking during move-in or the large Blue lot off of Forrest Way.

    Blue Lot Instructions
    o Take a right out of the GG lot
    o Take a right on to Grimes Way (first stop light)
    o Take a right onto Olympia Ave
    o Take a left on Forrest Dr. (four way stop sign)
    o The Blue lot will be on the right

    Words of Wisdom from past students and parents

    Rooms are smaller than you think. Spend some time looking at the photos and room dimensions and be realistic with what will fit.

    Review what you can’t bring – the list is specific for each hall.
