WSU Housing and Residence Life

Housing and Residential Life

The University has substantially decreased the number of students who can live in our residence halls. We will do our best to provide housing for those students who meet one or more of the criteria; however, eligibility under the criteria does not guarantee on-campus housing, and changing circumstances may require additional restrictions.

Orton Hall is a cohesive, active and engaging environment. Students who live in this residence hall value spending time with one another and form close, lasting relationships. There are some age-restricted, 19+ floors in this hall.

Single rooms with community-style bathrooms. Some age-restricted floors. 

While being more relaxed, Orton still has a fair share of residents that are engaged in the hall community. Each floor has a full kitchen, and residents on the 19 and older floors are not required to have an RDA account.
