Going West is about the complete college experience. UWG believes that those just beginning the journey are more involved with campus life if they were here. That's why freshmen are required to live on campus unless they are eligible for exemption via a residency waiver. Read more here about the residency waiver and eligiblitly for exemption such as non-traditional, commuter and transfer students with over 30 semester hours of credit.
Living West is more than finding a place to stash your stuff. It is about living your life as a part of the campus and community around you.
Living on campus is the sure way to be close to everything our campus has to offer. You're a quick walk away from classrooms, meeting places, campus recreation and dining facilities. Plus, you're guaranteed comfortable living accommodations and a residence hall staff whose number one job is to help you! The Housing and Residence Life program at UWG provides comfortable housing, academic support, and opportunities that challenge student residents to succeed. We also provide educational and social opportunities and strive to make living on campus a positive and memorable experience.
