Regents is a popular all-female residence hall located on the north side of campus across from the Bohler Athletic Complex. This engaging, vibrant and friendly hall is popular with first-year students, sorority women and student athletes. Regents Hall is a quick walk to Martin Stadium, Beasley Performing Arts Coliseum and the Student Recreation Center. Northside Café is located just off the lobby, along with the Northside Espresso Bar.
One of the community objectives for Regents Hall is to empower women by discussing topics such as women’s issues and accomplishments. Regents Hall also strives to support the academic success of the community and offers free tutoring in the hall. Traditionally, the hall government is very active and works to establish a vibrant hall spirit and a tradition of “togetherness.”

- Should I get renter's insurance when I live in University Housing?
Yes! While you may be covered under your parent’s homeowner’s insurance, claims against homeowner’s insurance can be expensive, especially compared to renter’s insurance. Personal property insurance is recommended by WSU. This insurance will cover your belongings if they are accidentally damaged, stolen, vandalized or suffer a loss from water, fire, smoke, etc. It’s very important to purchase coverage (starting at $65 for the year for $2,000 worth of coverage) so that in the event an emergency arises, you will have the funds to replace your items. If a loss occurs, WSU is not responsible. We strongly encourage all students to purchase this insurance as unfortunate situations can and do happen. Here are some common situations that can occur:
1. Water damage from sprinklers going off
2. Fire, smoke, explosion, windstorm
4. Accidental damage
To purchase this coverage, please visit www.studentinsuranceprograms.com/pp . You can also reach our broker that handles this plan (Haylor, Freyer, & Coon, Inc), at 866-535-0456 or email@example.com and they’d be happy to answer any questions that you have and help you enroll.
- What can I use to hang posters and pictures on the walls in this hall? What can I not use?
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. Regents has several walls with wall carpeting; please use tacks and pins on these walls, never use 3M Command strips.
- Can I bring my own microwave?
No, because the electrical capacity of the hall cannot handle individual microwaves. You can rent a Microfridge from us at check-in, first come, first serve.
- Can I bring a mini-fridge or microfridge?
Yes. Check the Housing and Dining Policies link in the Residence Halls Contracts and Policies section for more information and scroll down to get to the sections on Microfridges or Refrigerators.

Move In Information
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.
Specific Instructions for Regents Hall
Traffic is more challenging on the north side of campus during move-in so cars will be directed into queuing lines and will be released as active unloading zones become available for each hall. Portable toilets and water bottles are available while waiting. Lines can be as short as a couple of minutes and rarely as long as 20 minutes.
Drive to the Yellow parking lot South of Beasley Coliseum and let the attendants know what hall you are moving into so you get in the correct car queue line.
When instructed, drive to your assigned hall and look for the parking attendant and temporary parking signage directing you to an active unloading zone. For Regents Hall, you will turn into what looks like an alley way immediately before Northside Hall.
Students should enter through the hall's main entrance and check in with their CougarCard/photo ID at the front desk. Sign up for a cart if you need one or look for move-in volunteers.
As soon as you are done actively unloading, you must move your vehicle to the gray parking lot behind Beasley Coliseum to make room for others. Parking staff will be on site to assist you with directions.
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 Regents Hall 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. Do not use double-sided mounting products, permanent mounting products, blue mounting putty, tacks or push pins, masking tape, or duct tape. Regents has several walls with wall carpeting; please use tacks and pins on these walls, never use 3M Command strips.
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.
